FRESH 6 | Concept Philosophy
Lardieri store target is young adults between 16 and 35 years old, so the design goal is to create a pleasant and contemporary place where customers can have an enjoyable shopping experience and at the same time have the opportunity to easily navigate around the innovations and the store layout, including taking a selfie while shopping and wearing new clothes.

Notes Lighting design principles of a fashion retail recommend an average illumination of 200 lux for transit areas and 500 lux for the goods on display. LD was created using Dialux software. Each light choice aims to allow the following tasks: - L1 Wallwashers are used to illuminate the internal walls; - L2 Downlights are used to illuminate the floors evenly; - L3 Spotlights are used to illuminate directly and emphasise the products. 16 | Interior Elevation

ENTRANCE AREA Upon entering the store, in the middle of the room we find a display table that creates a circulatory path into the environment; instead on the walls (original brick partially covered in white paint to increase contrast with products) you see the furniture made with iron pipe and wood shelves. Main products are placed on the shelves: the shoes are sorted vertically by color. Products on the display table are arranged in a pyramid scheme following a visual merchandising strategy to increase sales.

WOMEN PRODUCTS DISPLAY Entering in the second environment of the store, attention is captured by the area designed for women: shelves containing accessories, display of dresses on sale (located next to the checkout, for an impulse purchase) and finally a mannequin wearing the clothes exposed. The customers circulation on floor plan ends with checkout, placed so that the employee can look all the store. The products arrangement follows the rules of visual merchandising: the bags are arranged in a diamond pattern with the remaining space occupied by accessories

FITTING ROOM AREA The choice to place the fitting room area downstairs, comes from the study of the customerâ€™s psychology who prefers to try privately clothes or shoes. Going down the stairs, into the environment covered by barrel vault, there is in the middle of the room a large pouf useful to try on shoes, while to try the clothes there are two dressing rooms. On the walls, you see many shelves useful to show other products while the customers are trying the clothes. The location of the fitting rooms near the storage area allows employees to quickly take the clothes or shoes size for customers.
