The first modern project to win a Historical Commission Award from the Town of Northampton, this retail space was designed for a local women’s clothing store. The undulating, brushed stainless-steel metalwork was designed and fabricated by Austin Design Inc. and Steelhead Studios. Walnut baseboard and display-window floor contrast with the bright metal and give natural warmth to the space.
Rather than conceal the existing framing, the glass- and metal-framed storefront exposes one of the buildings significant steel I-beams and creates a striking, backlit effect across the store’s logo.
