Glossier New York

From its roots in the beauty blog ‘Into the Gloss’, the Glossier skincare and beauty brand has always been about community. The space to house a new flagship store was conceived as a place to emphasize that sense of community in real life, and to bring people together to have a collective and interactive experience.

The project transforms the facade of a historic Chinatown loft using light as a tool to affirm the brand’s identity from the exterior and draw visitors inside. A custom architectural feature stair, a focal point in the design, connects customers from the street to a second-level retail showroom.

 

PRO worked incredibly closely with fabricators throughout the design and construction process to accomplish a series of bespoke architectural and display elements with masterful craftsmanship quality. The end result is a space in which every square inch is executed to represent the brand, and a partnership that extended to design four additional permanent retail locations.
