Where form meets function

Once upon a time, this space housed a spectacular pool. Appropriated by Hermes, and under the eye of architectural firm RDAI, the swimming baths become a dry land playground for the luxury brand’s new South Bank boutique.  The sweeping staircases and a series of twisting wooden pavilions delineate space in the large center area. This helps keep aspects of the brand separate and makes for more intimate shopping areas.

A nice reuse of venue, capitalizing on past luxury while infusing a new sense of environment.

For those interested, Dezeen has more information from the architects.
