Acne Studios

3 Rue Froissart, Paris

The studio is situated in a former metal shop built as a garage. The space does not have any windows except a skylight, which provides the space with some natural light a couple of hours a day. To increase the presence of natural light, a amber colored glass sheet rises from floor up to the ceiling gap, and a substantial numbers of fluorescents enhance the light to an almost biblical flood of radiance. By using aluminum partition walls we create scattered spaces, giving the store several expressions and uses. The aluminum reflects the small amount of natural light and equally reconnects to the history of the metal shop. The layout of the partitions invite the customer on an almost endless journey through the scattered spaces, which materialize in a different way depending your first direction at the point of entry. To attract the customers from the street, we have filtered the view of the entrance with a amber glass sliding door. When approaching, the door slides open and reveals the true colors of the studio.

Bozarthfornell is an office for architecture and design, founded 2010 by Andreas Bozarth Fornell. The office has a diverse portfolio and works within all different fields of architecture but the main focus so far is within the world of fashion retail. The people at Bozarthfornell have diverse backgrounds, something that we utilise in alternate ways for every different project.

We strongly believe that architecture and design is an art form. It gives strength and confidence to the individual as well as business corporations. This synthesis of concept, beauty and function completely absorbs our attention in every project. Our architectural vision derives its expression from the art world. It’s inspired by our travels and influenced by the pop-culture that surrounds us daily. It is intimately connected to both context and function.
