designing for commercial spaces is admittedly my favorite. researching unusual materials & architects and the ways in which you can get slightly more daring and inventive when designing commercial spaces. there is something wildly freeing about commercial space design (at least to me!). the australian-based on line design publication yellowtrace is a go-to source for commercial design inspiration...
1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8, 9&10, 11&12)
i've selected a few recent favorites, commercial spaces from inside australia and from other select locations around the world. what has drawn me in particular to these spaces is the use of texture, of creating texture, or exposing existing raw texture or the addition of unexpected materials. then of course there is the selection of out of the ordinary product (lighting, seating etc. ) and color palette choices.
these are spaces i could spend time in today. lots of time. enjoy!
