Prada has enlisted the long time collaborator architect Roberto Baciocchi to design their newly opened adress on the famed Calle Large XXII Marzo in Venice. The store set up contemporary for the coming nine months, is exclusively dedicated to label's menswear collections.
The façade includes a significant central entrance flanked by two large windows. The interior, visually connected to the city, is composed of two spaces paved with black and white marble chequered flooring – one of the defining features of Prada’s identity around the world – and green fabric-clad walls. The main entrance then leads further into an intimate area dedicated to ready-to-wear and decorated along the same themes. Lightweight polished aluminium display units, counters with saffiano coloured detailing, and ostrich leather sofas define the space exalting the contrast between the metal lighting beams and the precious ceiling decoration. – from PRADA
