Jewelry, textiles and traditional mexican crafts shop in Valle de Bravo for Co'tantik and Puerta del Cielo.
The challenge here was to translate Co'tantik's store in Guadalajara, while simultaneously creating an identity
for Puerta del Cielo, and blending both together.
It's a small and cozy place, a second height was built throughout a small loft which purpose was to create a second perspective of the shop, as well as make the most out of the space being able to use the space underneath.
Co'tantik's particular frames, previously used in Guadalajara's shop, were translated into a wall full of them, like a puzzle.
Collapsible shelfs were designed for a wall were colorful pieces are shown, they can be folded according to the size of the pieces, so space is well used.
The two original wooden doors of the space were removed so glass could create a window display and you could see what's inside, but they were recovered and incorporated into the design in one of the corners of the shop.
