Retail & Café Design – GPO exhibition
Retail and cafe design created in conjunction with the Witness History exhibition celebrating the centenary of the the Irish Republic at the GPO in central Dublin. With a location overlooking an open courtyard, the cafe and retail space were designed as a space for visitors to relax and reflect after visiting the exhibition. Utilising the natural light that floods the space from the glass walls overlooking the courtyard, colours have been kept to a minimum to create an open and refreshing space within this historical building. The dark stained flooring is in-keeping with the antiquated nature of the building while the use of a contemporary shade of green reflects the modern society of the capital. The retail design has been incorporated within the cafe space to engage with the tourism industry which will inevitably be the largest visitor to the space.
