Article 27 is a boutique store promoting products, clothing and cosmetics from around the globe who share the belief and cause based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Article 27’s interior provides a blank canvas for its unique products and fashion designs from all over the world to be displayed. In keeping with the rustic character of Queen West, the original poured concrete floor has been maintained, only making way to new white drywall and custom white millwork. Not competing with the ever changing product line, stark materiality and intriguing lighting creates the backdrop to each piece. The store’s orthogonal plan and staggered displays create a balance between product lines to maintain the boutique’s sleek approach to retail. The pivotal mirrored column reflects the natural light during the day, bouncing light from the staggered cove lighting throughout the space.
