retail interior design, fabrication, fitout and project management

Vintage clothing and accessories store, Vintage Sole, engaged Moth to deliver a unique experience for their 3rd and latest retail space, in Cathedral arcade, part of the iconic Nicholas Building. By producing a warm and highly customised space, Moth’s approach encompassed a sensitivity to the unique heritage of the architecture, as well as the character inherent in the label’s product. Hand stencilled pattern is layered upon the original concrete floors, an art deco inspired steel balustrade allows for visual transparency to the mezzanine level above. Feature walls emphasise the double-height of the space and reimagine the use of shingle cladding, while custom built furniture, fittings and fixtures of copper piping and hardwood shelving showcase the unique assemblage of products.
