CLOSED headquarters, Hamburg, Interior Design

For the international fashion label Closed, PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN completed the expansion of the headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. The 1,375 sqm space doubles the existing office area and integrates the company’s Online Services team and in-house photo studio.

Located in the residential neighbourhood of Eppendorf, the interior of the former tramway depot with typical 1890’s red brick façade was restructured to provide both workspaces and communal areas. On the ground floor, offices with glass walls are situated around an atrium space with greens, while an open office layout on the first floor generates a light-flooded working environment essential for a communal and creative atmosphere.

Focal point of the expanded space is the spacious restaurant and kitchen with double height ceilings. Contrasting the industrial architecture, solid oak dining tables and benches by David Chipperfield for e15 elegantly highlight simplicity and warmth.

Since 2004, PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN has collaborated with Closed in creating a progressive and identifiable brand architecture for the label. This includes the design and realisation of all Closed retail stores, showroom spaces as well as numerous international exhibition stands for the brand.

CLOSED, Oldenburg, Interior Design

For international fashion label Closed, PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN was commissioned to design the brand’s new store in Oldenburg. The 157 sqm space integrates with multi brand store Du Nord, also designed by the office, into a 373 sqm fashion and lifestyle destination in the heart of the city’s old town.

The interior and its high concrete ceilings reveal an impressive modern space arranged in a composition of intriguing presentation forms and spaces for men and women rendered in an original mix of colours and materials. Preserving the industrial character of the space, a thin black lighting system is silhouetted against the raw concrete as an informal contrast to the solid oak floor radiating warmth. Emphasising the authentic yet innovative character of the Closed brand, high-grade materials such as oak, bronze and marble have been combined into a modern and progressive interior concept.

Du Nord, Oldenburg, Interior Design

PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN was commissioned with the interior design of multi brand store Du Nord in Oldenburg. The 179 sqm space offers room for the selected range of fashion and lifestyle products and integrates with a Closed mono brand store, also designed by the office.

To create the retail space in the heart of the city’s old town, the original, historic building was reconstructed, creating an intriguing contrast with the neighbouring modern architecture. Inside, high concrete ceilings and exposed ventilation shafts contribute to an industrial look. The floor made from solid oak contrasts the raw concrete and brings warmth and comfort to the space.

A sophisticated palette of high-grade materials mixed with a subtle range of colours brings focus to the architectural interior, highlighted by the shifting cubical forms that function both as sculptural presentation platforms and storage units. Bespoke back lit shelves in pale grey give way to lean and elegant intermitted hanging rails designed to bring focus to each collection of fashion. The integrated lounge highlighted in solid walnut and brass welcomes customers to linger and extend their visit.

CLOSED, Bread & Butter, Berlin, Exhibition Design

For the international fashion label Closed an exhibition design was realised in the space of the former editorial offices of Berlin’s famous city magazine “Tip Berlin” in the course of Berlin’s fashion show Bread & Butter in July 2013. The 550 sqm presentation on the ground floor of an Art Nouveau building was developed to exude an abstract character. Diverse and bespoken clothes racks with elements of coloured glass and mirror were created to present the new collection and underline the modern aesthetic of the fashion label. Cabinet tables made of black and white metal with elements of marble and brass as well as the bespoke clothes racks were used to structure the huge space into individual rooms and increased the abstract and geometric effect. An outside lounge area underlined the artistic event character of the exhibition.

In 2004, the collaboration with the Hamburg based fashion label Closed started with the realisation of the company’s first flagship store in downtown Hamburg. Since then, the fashion label commissioned the interior design of Closed stores and showrooms around the world with the briefing to establish a distinct global corporate architecture for the brand.
