Contrasting materials and sharp, white curves characterize the new Versace store at Westfield Sydney. The project, by Crone Partners in Australia, is the second store designed for Versace by London-based architect Jamie Fobert. The first, in Beijing, is two storeys, so part of the challenge of creating the Sydney store was to make the design work with a smaller footprint. However, being small had its advantages, especially when it came to creating the feeling that the store was carved from a block of white stone. Perspex shopfittings and white curved niches demonstrate an innovative approach to display racks and shelves, but the key feature here is a marble inlay floor that references historic Italian architecture.
