The Organic Supermarket Blackrock
We were commissioned to design a store that sells only certified 100% organic produce for this South County Dublin location. Influences were taken from the traditional grocer or apothecary shops. Dark oak cabinetry was combined with contemporary stainless steel shelving to provide an attractive solution to product display.
The design of the till counter was inspired by the old counters yet work with modern technology. Natural fibre baskets were used to display fruit and vegetables and wicker carry baskets and paper bags are used by customers.
The floor is covered with unglazed porcelain tiles. For the purpose of advertising blackboards were integrated in the design. Hessian-effect wall covering was incorporated as a backdrop to show projected images that will change seasonally. Behind the scenes the design allowed for spatial planning to ancillary office, store and toilet areas.
