It`s a multi-brand store located on the ground floor and mezzanine of an old building from the beginning of the 20th century located in downtown Porto.


It was on the tension created between the lightness of the metal gratings and the materiality of the marble and tile blocks that the identity of The Feeting Room's new store, on Rua de José Falcão, in Porto, was based. The space was conceived with enthusiasm, in search of the authentic and in a sustainable way. This will be the background on which clothing, footwear and accessories from 15 independent brands will be displayed, assuring the aesthetic coherence of the set without ever taking away the prominence of the products on display.


The space was created with imperfect materials and finishes, but full of soul and that become more and more beautiful with the passage of time, such as wood, steel or plaster. The color palette chosen is light and neutral, with the exception of the counter at the entrance of the store, which was executed in an earth tone to draw the attention of customers for clarification of doubts and payments. The same color was used on the upper floor to mark the only perfumery existing in the store and to envelop the two floors through color.


The furniture is modular to be able to combine and change as needed.


The existing wooden staircase has been maintained and takes us to the upper floor that was made with wood from demolition and where we can enjoy a restaurant and continue to enjoy the products on display.


The space also has a garden in the backyard that was designed to allow for different activities, such as yoga classes, concerts or open-air cinema. We access the garden through the Underdogs Gallery space where art pieces by different artists are displayed. The palette for this space is a little cooler than the other areas of the store to give the pieces of art all the prominence.
