Gertler & Wente Architects was asked to design a new flagship store for Fendi on the corner of 56th Street and Fifth Avenue. The project includes a two-story facade and three floors of showrooms and retail space. The facade design incorporates large-scale elements of the display system and features large amounts of glazing for easy visibility to the interior of the store. The interior of the store was reconfigured to allow for several two-story spaces, a new grand staircase and larger retail areas. Interior finishes include 1/8″ thick steel flooring panels, steel and wenge wood display fixtures, custom lighting, and glazed walkways.
