New York, New York
The American flagship store for Camper Shoes is located on a corner site on Prince Street in Soho, New York City inside of a Landmark District. The exterior of the building has been redesigned with full height sliding doors that open the store to the street for a market experience. The paper tube roof structure reconfigures the flat roof, creating Camper’s ‘House of Shoes’. The main feature of the red and white interior is an angled display wall featuring the shoes inside the brands’ name and from which the entire store design radiates. Depending on the approach to the store from either of two streets, one sees the Camper colors, either a white or a red interior. As Director for Shigeru Ban Architects.
