The timeframe was always going to be tight and combination of finishes left the Yarra Valley Commercial team a little perplexed after the initial brief. However, the Studio Edwards design soon came to life as the Flagship store for Vision Studios.  An impressive design for an equally impressive optician and luxury eyewear store.

The Design

The storefront boasts alumunium sheets hinging open to reveal a jewel-like interior.  The YVC team laser cut and folded, assembled and installed the sheets.  The space boasted two distinct areas.  The front showcasing high-end eyewear and the rear, a functional area for consulting and the eye testing booths.

Industrial materials such as aluminium and concrete contrasted beautifully with the polished finish of the New York marble and the clean design and palette of the cabinetry.  The striking interior brand signage was made with an LED marblo frame faced with clear toughened glass.

The entire design uses a clever contrast of materials achieving a striking balance between raw and refined.

From the Project Manager

John Lovelock, project manager declares the highlight of this install was without a doubt, the aluminium storefront.  “I didn’t know how this would all work together.  However, the end result was impressive” comments John.  “The design by Ben and Nancy from Studio Edwards ensures Vision Studio stands out from their competitors as well as within the centre”.

John concludes noting that many were doubtful that this project would be completed on time and on-brief.  However, yet again John attributes the successful install to the efforts, skills and expertise of his team members.
