Show around a mezzanine

WISHES OF THE CLIENT
Stichts Handelshuis has been around since 1911. It supplies high-end sanitary products to installers. The new showroom is much bigger, but in contrast to the old layout, it is now divided across two floors. How to tackle this?
Cutting out a 50 m2 mezzanine means losing space, but it does ensure that you create one complete whole. An inviting stairway, prominently in view, will bring you to magnificent displays on the upper level. And this ensures the entire building will be used.
By partially separating each showroom using the same black trellis, we create cadence and repetition. This emphasises the differences between the displays. The square can be used for theme displays and promotional shows.
