Valerio Olgiati recently completed the interior of Céline Flagship Store in Miami, USA. The facades, floors, walls, ceilings are entirely made of marble. -text provided by the architects
A marble shell is laid over an existing two-storey structure. The facades, floors, walls, ceilings are entirely made of marble.
The blue-green Pinta Verde from Brazil is exceptional and creates a wonderful atmosphere for Céline.
More tent than boutique, this is a place where an internal universe can be imagined.
The exhibition space on the ground floor is a canopy, held by concrete pillars. These columns connect the entire building to the foundation.
The virtual world exists in parallel with the physical.
Above is a space deep inside the marble, where shoes and ready-to-wear are displayed.
