drive retail development. Their behavior is propelled
by personal needs and influenced by marketing, fashion
and current trends. Due to the breadth of these
needs and influences, it is a challenge to make
a retail environment that stands out, is unique
and makes a positive impact on consumers. Retail
designs must be impressive and innovative, yet they
must also make consumers feel at home. The retail
environment needs to translate into a “my
place” environment. These results can be realized
through the use of cutting edge architectural techniques
and concepts. Exercising the architectural space
of a retail environment as a current fashion statement,
and employing the architectural concept of mixing
functions and services in an unexpected way will
highly engage consumers. They will identify with
the current trends, recognize the unique identity
of retail space (branding) and sense excitement
(entertainment), which will ultimately result in
increased visitor and sales figures.
