The Gail Sorronda Concept Store was a temporary pop-up tenancy, located in Brisbanes TCB building. The architecture of the interior plays on the many contradictions within the Gail Sorronda label juxtaposing crisp, masculine lines with soft, feminine forms; shadow with light; and solid with void.
The interior draws together ideas of suspension and the embrace, using a sequence of suspended steel ribs that repeat along the ceiling, and displaced floor planes. Reflection and light dramatise the length of the narrow space. The fluid form of each stainless steel rib wraps the store in an embrace, while also providing hanging and display space inside the store.
