Marc by Marc Jacobs Milan by Stephan Jaklitsch ArchitectsMay 13, 2010
The new store and café occupies the full ground floor of a building adjacent to Santa Maria del Carmine – a 15th century church built for the first duke of Milan. The goal was to create a truly integrated environment that blends the functions of both the store and café -- allowing a free flow from the sales floor to the adjacent bar area. Previously divided into three separate storefronts, SJA removed all existing interior partitions to create one large, open floor plan. New frameless windows were then inserted into eight of the building’s twelve south-facing arched bays to unify the existing façade and allow clear views into the store and café. New steel framed glass doors were set into the remaining four bays -- creating a main entrance for the store to the west and a larger café entrance to the east.
