butcher memoirs

location: monastiraki-athens

architectural design: archivirus

date: 2011


this shop used to be a butcher shop for over a decade. monastiraki area has a strong local character so the first thought when we were asked to design a clothing store was to definitely keep some remnants from the past.the whole design was based in that idea. we proposed white tiles for the walls, hooks for hangers, meat refrigerators and round wooden cutting tables for the display. the final design reminds of a butcher shop with the only difference the selling product.
