The project in Friendswood is the third retail store for the Rajeunir Black Caviar brand. The design for this location diverges from the previous two stores, that were larger and more immersive. Since this store is smaller, the approach expanded from a previous concept proposal for a temporary pop-up environment for the same brand. Rather than a surface that wraps the interior retail environment, the pop-up concept inserts a series of objects within a space. The objects create personalized spaces for demonstrating and displaying the products. This is supplemented by a curtain that divides the treatment space from the sales area providing privacy yet flexibility to draw the curtains open to visually enlarge the small retail space.
