Acne Studios Horatio Street
Size: 2,000 SF
Having completed the New York home for the executive chairman of Acne Studios, HS2 Architecture was asked to work with Sophie Hicks Architects in London on the design of the new West Village location. With this store, Acne Studios launched their innovative retail design concept in the United States.
The site was originally 3 small stores that Acne Studios demolished to create one space. The design is a clean minimal aesthetic articulated with a glass and stainless steel store front, custom stainless steel millwork, and custom curved translucent glass walls for the lighting. This refinement is in stark contrast to the raw natural concrete floors.
The minimal architecture highlights Acne Studios merchandise. “The stores are a great back drop for our clothing, shoes and accessories”
