Feelunique at Au Caprice
Style Shopfitting were selected as main contractor for the expansion and refit of Feelunique at Au Caprice. Originally at 25-27 King Street, the Au Caprice shop was to be extended into 23 King Street to create a 2900 square foot walk though store.
Style Shopfitting worked alongside project managers Sheridan & Co, a global retail design agency and interior designer Stuart Dryden of Waddingtons Interiors.
The project involved the management of the base build – temporary shoring whilst forming the structural opening between 23 and 25, general store alterations and demoitions, followed by a complete strip out and refit of the three areas including new flooring, walls, ceilings, M & E installations, decorations and lighting.
Specially designed feature ceilings with drop down levels and integrated LED lighting were constructed on site, perimeter unit surrounds and elements of the wall fitments were built in the Style Shopfitting Joinery workshop and fitted to the wall perimeters ready to have the brand counters and bespoke built unitary slotted in.
Style Shopfitting coordinated and produced a variety of different wall finishes creating different features around the store including Muraspec feature board walls, spray painted walls, Polyrey finishes and Textura gold leaf style wallpapers.
In the men’s grooming area Style Shopfitting have installed a ramp with a frameless glass infill balustrade further adding to the modern forward thinking design for this store. The flooring throughout the space is an Amtico wood effect tile in two contrasting tones.
As the site is located on the busy and pedestrian King Street, all deliveries and management of materials was via the back of the store into Vine Street.
The programme set for the works was extremely short – just six weeks.
Style Shopfitting worked hard to ensure the main contract out was completed for week beginning 17 February prior to the arrival of eight individual shopfitters, representing the various brands, who would build and create the final install of branded display equipment.
