Nicholas Kirkwood | Las Vegas Flagship store, WYNN Las Vegas & Encore

May 2013

The approach taken for the design of the Las Vegas store was to take into account of the glamourous nature of this location and play with materials and ideas to reflect this. The retail store is part of an internal mall and it was important to make a strong visual statement with the facade to create a contrast with the architecture and typography of the mall in order to be visible.

The project includes a sculptural dome and a circular radiating marble parquet in two types of white marble used in conjunction with a carpet in the same pattern blending seamlessly into the pattern to create a dramatic flooring.

Display walls with inset boxes alongside a centre piece back lit corian wall highlighting the silhouettes of the shoes create a clean uncluttered look.
