French based architecture firm FREAKS Freearchitects has unveiled their latest project, Helicosm, a Parisian cosmetic store. The shop is located in a railroad style space stretching a mere 70′ feet from front to back. Freaks used the slim and deep space to their advantage by creating a design which complemented those perimeters. At the entrance, the space is covered with a light mint hue which covers every surface of the space, including the custom designed retail counter. Near the middle of the shop, a birch wood tunnel is introduced which draws guests to the rear of the store. The wood tunnel wraps the floor, ceilings, and walls, and incorporates shelving and storage units within the feature. The back of the store repeats the front with the mint color, and a whimsical, refreshing aesthetic!
