Abruzzo Bodziak Architects has designed British clothing brand maharishi’s first store outside of the United Kingdom. The flagship is situated in a landmarked loft building on Lispenard Street in Tribeca. The two-level store is a building within a building; the project preserves the space’s historic details by floating the new shop inside the existing interior. A grid of wood cabinetry defines the insertion, marking out the two levels, and halfway through the space, a mezzanine levitates above the shop, creating an intimate room upstairs. The design of the store takes cues from formal Japanese gardens and military supply warehouses as well as historic shops of New York City.
