2019 WIN Awards: Erewhon SM - Montalba Architects

Jessica Evans
12 Jun 2019

Erewhon SM - Montalba Architects is an entry in the Chain stores, department stores, supermarkets, concessions and pop-ups category at the 2019 World Interiors News Awards.

Tasked with giving patrons a new shopping experience, the design highlights and unifies primary communal areas, while providing a platform by which the food is showcased and guests are encouraged to gather.

Large skylights flood the interiors with light and sculpted soffits with suspended opaque glass to help fade one’s awareness of the building edge. A large indoor-outdoor trellis extends over the garden terrace imparting the dappled light effect of a tree canopy in an effort to create a landscaped communal space within the urban retail block. Perforated powder coated panels are set between Alaskan cedar glulams to direct and diffuse light through the trellis. Along the façade, a procession of blackened steel frames modulates the scale and provide a surface for greenery. The materials are intentionally neutral in color to allow for the texture and plantings to take precedence.
