This was a collaborative project between sophomore Industrial Design and Interior Design students at Virginia Tech.
Project goal: Explore the bridge between interior design and industrial design through space planning, merchandise display, branding, furniture, fixtures, and service design for a new boutique retail shop. The space to be renovated sits on a corner of two narrow streets in a neighborhood that is being revitalized. The neighborhood must be part of a larger urban context located in one of the following cities: San Francisco, CA, Memphis, TN, or Pittsburgh, PA and create a unique video to demonstrate your concept.
Suggested Retail Categories: Toys, Books, Housewares, Dry Goods, Consumer Electronics, Beauty, Athletic Gear, Family Apparel, Gardening, Jewelry, Eyewear, Pet Products
