Lansky 126

Located within the historic Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, Lanksy 126 is a retail clothing store that was transformed from a formerly cramped and confusing space into an open and more organized environment. The design required creative reconfiguring, but resulted in the store embracing a fresh feel and thereafter increased sales. The wall between the spaces was recast as a dynamic object concealing mechanical equipment, adding niches for product display and containing two fitting rooms. The dressing rooms appear as discovered spaces inside a part of the wall that has been pushed from one room into the other. The former division between the two rooms was altered in a way that it could become the organizing link between them.
