When looking to open their first brick and mortar store, Neighborhood Goods selected Scott + Reid to perform the 14,000-square-foot build-out. An innovative concept, this client is reshaping the notion of a typical department store with their unorthodox approach of revolving goods. To accommodate this business model, the design is flexible to facilitate modification to any size of shop. The store’s fixtures of continuity include dressing rooms, shelving, and sign panels; while sealed concrete flooring and raised platforms differentiate the lease spaces.
The anchor feature, a proprietary restaurant, includes a u-shaped bar top comprised of stone, tile and a hand-painted mural of geometric lines and patterns that surrounds the full-service kitchen area. The restaurant is designed to be integrated into the shopping experience and provides ample communal space to host workshops, lectures, and other events.
Meeting the strict 12-week timeline that coincided with the scheduled retail opening required constant communication and extensive coordination to allow the multitude of vendors access to the site. The Scott + Reid project team utilized a comprehensive schedule to ensure all trades were provided access to the site as needed and not interrupt the overall finish-out progress.
