Parks / Open Spaces Public Transport Parking Lots


SITE ANALYSIS

Market Street is a prime spot for any retail space in the city. The footfall in this area would really help business. The site is adjacent to Four Seasons, multiple Residences, Sports Clubs and Union Square amenities.

F I N D I N G S & SO LU T IO N S There are very few spots to park around the site with parking lots 3 to 4 blocks away. Even bike parking in front of the store is just enough for one. One of the solutions is to provide Decathon bikes for hire as a service to the community due to lack of parking in the area. These bikes would also help in promoting the brand and help create brand loyalty. Another idea was to provide attractive outdoor seating with wifi, to increase footfall.

Sun Path

The site also has great access to public transportation; Muni and Bart. The major streets that surround the site are Market St, Kearny St, Geary St, Grant Ave and O’Farrell St. This historic building is surrounded by multiple landmarks like the yerba Buena gardens, Phelan building, and the Museum of Ice cream. The building has high ceilings, operable windows and was fully renovated as part of a Millennium Project. There are tons of restaurants and cafes in the area. The site is also close to multiple banks, electric charging stations and shopping centres. Year Built: 1908

PROJECT OVERVIEW

10

C L IE N T Maxime Bernard U S Ma r ke t E n t r y DECATHLON USA Maxime was very clear about the objective - To reinvent Decathlon for the US market. The main thing to keep in mind was that the entire store be visible from the street. So, the window displays had to be done accordingly. The floor space was not enough to display all of the 40,000 products Decathlon had to offer and an alternative display had to be designed. For maximum utilization of space, the traditional cash counter was replaced with a cashless mobile checkout.


PROJECT OVERVIEW

PR O JE C T P R O G R A M COWORKING SPACE

To make people understand who Decathlon is as soon as they enter the store or maybe, even before they enter. Something that helps explain their history, timeline and their corporate values.

A place where the employees feel at home, get to meet users and co-create. An open space where they can work on their laptops as well as be ready to help consumers. Dialogue, face to face with the customer was kept in mind while designing this space.

CO M M UNI T Y AREA A community area where locals can meet up. An area that creates an opportunity for the brand to have a dialogue with the end user.

C HE C K- O UT Everywhere and Nowhere. No cash counters, no lines. Mobile checkout. Cashless only.

D R E SSING RO O MS Cozy spaces. Seamless sales assistant support.

WORKSHOP A workshop set-up, where you can build, maintain and repair your Decathlon products. A place where you can DIY or ask the technician and share a cup of coffee.

OMNICHA NNE L ENDLE SS AI S LE S Being smaller than a standard Decathlon store, a combination of physical and digital displays was utilized to show/access the full range of products, motivating people to use their phone to purchase products online.

The store exterior is one of the most important parts of retail design as it sets the tone for the entire store as well as the brand. Important client requirements to keep in mind - Reinventing the brand for the US market, building a relationship with the community and having the entire store visible from the street with particular importance to window displays.


DESIGN PROCESS

R E TA I L D E S I G N : D E CAT H LO N

Taking everything into consideration, a modern and sleek exterior would work well in the US market. The windows are big and designed with clean lines so that the customer can get a good look of the entire store just by walking past it. An attractive sit-out, insipred by the painted ladies of San Francisco, is designed for anyone who wants to sit, work or hangout. Decathlon branded bikes are provided for hire, next to the sit-out as a service to the community. This would serve as an excellent advertisement for the brand and help the brand form a relationship with the community.

Being it’s first store in the US, Decathlon’s history and corporate values had to be an important part of the store. A timeline wall graphic placed at the entrance helps in getting customers well acquainted with the brand as they enter the store. Windows were designed in a way that the interiors are visible from the street.

The concept “Mimicking Outdoors� was based on the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Triangle was chosen to help best represent this. The triangle element was used throughout the store in the form of a customized ceiling design, customized gondolas and carefully chosen light fixtures.

For ease of purchase, iPads have been provided to connect to customer’s personal devices Andriod or IOS, in order to purchase products directly with their phones.

CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS

N E H A M O H A N | 614 4 4 6 8 4 0 8

One of the biggest challenges in designing this store was constrained space as the client wanted a way to display their entire product line. The Solution was a digital touch screen display that can carry all the variety of products they have to offer. This can also be used to advertise Decathlon’s hero products and store promotions. Touchscreens encourage customers to use their phones to make a purchase which helps Decathlon with their cashless checkout requirement.

COMMERCIAL DESIGN ALTO PHARMACY RETAIL + OFFICE SPACE

2017


PROJECT BRIEF To design a mixed use space which has a small retail outlet for people to come and pick up their prescriptions. The rest of the space was to be converted into an office space. Focus areas were a small retail area, a separate area for driver seating, sales team desk area, soft seating and ample storage.

C L IE N T M a t t i e u G a m a che Rem ode l o f E x i s t i n g S p a c e ALTO PHARMACY The client required a complete remodel of this space as they were rebranding themselves from ScriptDash to Alto. For this remodel, the main focus was that the employees get a cool, young and comfortable space to work in keeping in mind the long hours. Another requirement was to add around a 1000sq ft space for drug storage, away from sunlight and also to keep the retail outlet separate from the drivers seating area.


PROJECT OVERVIEW

PR O JE C T P R O G R A M DRIVERS SEATING

A small retail area, just meant for pick ups and limited guest seating for about 3-4 people with stock shelving. This space could be combined with the reception area and carry the new Alto branding as well.

A place where the drivers sit and wait for taking out their deliveries. A place where they can relax, maybe have coffee. They are Alto employees as well and should be made to feel the same.

SO F T M EET I N G A soft meeting space for the employees to relax in and have informal meetings. The space should seat about 10 people.

SA L E S T EAM To provide comfortable workstations with sit-tostand tables and some personal storage space for about 25 people.

M E E TI NG RO O MS A minimum of three meeting rooms and two conference rooms needed to be provided. These rooms should seat 5 to 6 people.

L ARGE STOCK SPAC E A place that is away from the sun. The requirement is to alot around a 1000 sq ft for storing drugs.

CONCEPT STATEMENT


CONCEPT STATEMENT

The concept for this mixed use building is VITALITY AND TRANSPARENCY. The aim was to create a welcoming environment for the whole space that is filled with Zest & Energy. Another thing to keep in mind was to avoid the “typical clinical feel� that customers are used to in community pharmacies as well as to avoid cold, impersonal office spaces. This was achieved by keeping an open floor plan that mirrors the Transparency concept. The Vitality concept has been adapted by providing natural light for the whole space with the help of a full glass exterior and a clerestory window for the Mezzanine floor which was lacking natural light.

The mezzanine was hardly getting any sunlight as it was far out in the back. To counter this, clerestory windows were provided as a skylight to infuse some natural light into the space. These kinds of windows provide light without the loss of privacy and avoid problems like water retention during rain. FLOOR PLAN

CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS

N E H A M O H A N | 614 4 4 6 8 4 0 8

One of the main challenges was the lack of natural light in this unique office space + pharmacy model. For the mezzanine, a skylight was designed to provide daylight and after a lot of thought, the exterior facade was also given a glass exterior to infuse more light into the building. For obvious safety concerns, the prescription drugs will never be kept near the glass exterior but would be delivered from storage only when the customer is ready for pickup. Furthermore, the retail space glass facade is made of toughened safety glass for extra protection.

Most of the light and the best views are from Broadway and 17th. The AC transit building right behind our site may block some daylight from east. The thing to keep in mind is that the transit building is quite tall, so it will cast a shadow on our site whereas the Cathedral building is a bit far off to cast a shadow.

U SER P RO FIL E Located in eclectic and diverse Downtown Oakland, the neighborhood is a hub for a variety of activities and will mostly have a highly diverse crowd. Guests will range from 25 yrs to 55 yrs. Being an extended-stay type hotel, it would predominantly be serving guests traveling on business, mainly consultants (business / tech). The hotel would be catering to upper middle class and elite customers. Apart from catering to Business guests, tourists would makeup around 20-25% of the clientele as the Hotel is downtown of a major city and next to a lot of transit hubs.

Hotel Zelos was perfect for my precedent study because the type, location and the clientele served by them is very similar to my client requirements. Hotel Zelos is located in the SOMA District of San Francisco, home to a variety of shops, businesses, restaurants, and nightlife. The Powell Street BART station is just around the corner and the trolley cars are right on Market Street. The client site too, is located on a busy street in downtown Oakland, close to a variety of commercial businesses with plenty of public transportation. Hotel Zelos, formerly known as Hotel Palomar, resides in the historic Pacific Building, which opened in 1907. Originally built as an office space, the 5th to 9th floors eventually became Hotel Palomar in 1999. Still maintaining their original layout, their guest rooms are larger than an average hotel room in San Francisco. Being a boutique hotel, the interiors and architecture of Hotel Zelos helped the project a lot. Additionally, Hotel Zelos has about 3,000 sq ft of flexible meeting / event space, and a bar / restaurant called Dirty Habit. Another reason to chose this hotel was that I have stayed here twice, making me familiar with the interiors. Type of Design - Sophisticated, Stylish and Urban that gels well with the architecture of downtown San Francisco. A dramatic film noir inspired dining room. Bedrooms that start five floors above to counter the traffic noise of Union Square and to provide privacy. Padded wallpapers and thick carpet flooring for the bedrooms and corridors to further reduce noise. Traditional exteriors and eclectic interiors are the perfect mix for a hotel in San Francisco. Clearly, this was well thought out.

CONCEPT SKETCHES

76

PRO C E SS My main take away from Wine would be it’s fluidity and movement. This is incorporated in the floors and ceilings for better pathfinding by using curvy lines to lead users through the space. A confluence of transparency, bold colors and fusion of different materials is used to arrive at a space that is both elegant and up to date with the latest technology. The Feel - a place that has opulent characteristics, aged in oak and leather, has silky undertones and leaves you with a calm happy after taste.

LOBBY & RECEPTION DESK

DESIGN - The Reception desk has a fluid form and is light colored like Champagne that flows onto the floor and leads the viewer’s eye into the space as they enter the lobby. The light fixtures above the desk are like bubbles floating up from a bubbly drink. The wine rack has select wines from local wineries and the form of the suspended ceiling is based on fluidity of wine.
