Hart & Co

Ideas of warmth and comfort informed this design for homewares retailer Hart + Co. Springing from close collaboration between the client and our studio, the pared-back design for their flagship store combines Australian timbers and crisp white surfaces to form a backdrop to the brand’s collection of quality Australian homewares, toys, art and furniture. The store’s distinctive timber-clad facade is wide and inviting, blurring the threshold between the store itself and the thoroughfare beyond. Within the store, custom shopfittings are flexible and modular, taking their cues from domestic design. Rich materiality – timber furniture and concrete pendant lamps – give the space a warmth and tactility.
