Urban Eyes II

Optometry Office With an Eye on Vitality

Within this space there is an intriguing tension between the frenzied energy produced by a playful perspective manipulation and discrete moments of contemplative calm. The varying of materials gives the space vitality without feeling over designed. A perforated metal billboard mounted on exposed concrete columns acts as a changeable display while a curving raised boardwalk encourages foot traffic. Using only basic materials, we created an edgy yet comfortable space, winning a Best Retail Interior Award (SFASID) and an Interior Architectural Award (SFAIA).
