The innovative Nanushka Beta Store building which is located in the center of Budapest is a very well eco-friendly fashion trading spot. The idea of eco-friendly retail space is along the lines of Nanushka’s most important values, on the contrary with any other conventional urban building designs.
Vacancy advertising was posted in a number of design schools. After that, it was Sandra Sandor, a young Hungarian fashion designer, who in particular selected some excited and passionate graduates to join up the team. The selection process brings Daniel Balo, Zsofia Dobos, Dora Medveczky, Judit Emese Konopas and Noemi Varga the selected architecture students. They came from different universities and different classes. In this project, they had to work together for the first time. Moreover, the team had only three weeks to complete the mission.
As a consequence of the short time they had, smart and ingenious solutions were important in finishing this project on time. Not only a short time to complete the project, they also had to create a design that would not harm or even destroy the interior of the fashion store. They are only allowed to carry out a number of minor drillings. In addition, they had to be able to work this project with moderately low finances. As a result, with just 2000 €, they were expected to design a natural and cozy interior design (that is harmoniously in line with values of Nanushka brand) in a uniquely lengthened shaped building.
The wilderness and elements of conventional wedding tents and barn weddings were things that they used as the design’s inspiration. For that reason, they collected some unprocessed materials, for example cotton, linen, wood, and corroded steel for the design. Those raw materials were also eco-friendly since they put emphasis on the function of reuse as the design concept.
As the process, they firstly formed a wiring system for the canvas (250 square meters) that would wrap the interior by hauling cable wires underneath the ceiling. After doing that, they were finally able to pull the canvas to the air and dropped it in a particular way which covered all over the interior of the fashion shop.
Afterward, they cut the wood into some small circles and placed them out to make flooring. There were some small display racks made from logs of wood that popped out from the ground. There were also some cylinder shaped linen poufs and balloon lamps that intensify the form and theme of the space. Even so, there are some geometric forms could be found in the counter and fitting rooms, in addition to the tarnished steel racks gave a compact counterpoint and serene sense of balance. Over all, the design was a beautiful combination of rusty, coarse, velvety, and smooth surfaces wrapped in majesty clean white color. Visit designer website here
