Top Shop Top Man Wellington
Top Shop Top Man Wellington is located over two levels in prominent location on Lambton Quay. The tenancy space was a conversion of a series of existing retail stores over both levels. The Landlord required a new façade, canopy and entrance.
JCY were the local delivery architects and was a collaborative effort with Zebra and Arcadia Group UK for the interior. JCY were the design architects for these base build works. JCY was responsible for the entire new external highly glazed facade, steel and glass canopy and new store entry on Lambton Quay with collaboration with the Landlord, local Engineers and council. The store required two new entrance, one of each level to TSTM’s specific requirements.
The design internally is an evolution of the TSTM Auckland store design. Joinery elements and store design are more paired back and minimal in terms of the material palate and detailing. JCY sourced all required local materials and finishes for the project, had regular teleconference review meetings with overseas parties and involvement with PM firm RDW during the tender process and tender analysis.
JCY attended regular site meetings in Wellington to oversee the works and responded to both base build and fitout queries to ensure the design intent interpreted correctly. The store opened October 2016.
