Featured Project- Uniqlo Flagship Store
Uniqlo – Faneuil Hall, Boston, Massachusetts
A Japanese based clothing store, their unique clothing appeals to values of simplicity, quality and longevity. Their stores are also known for their clean and streamlined aesthetics, with white walls and ceiling, going into an historical space like Faneuil Hall was quite a shift. The store designer’s vision of a vacant vaulted ceiling spaces was met with multiple existing mall systems that had to remain in place serving other tenants below. Painting all the exposed ductwork and piping black helped to tone down the impact of so many components going on over head. The space is served by smaller air handling units suspended above with four pipe, heating/cooling coils fed from a building chiller and boiler central plant.
