The Brief

Our facade design team were engaged by Construction By Design to undertake a prestigious facade design project within the high-end Queens Plaza precinct in Queensland. The project centered around the creation of a striking new boutique retail shopfront that would embody the essence of YSL’s iconic brand while seamlessly integrating with the luxurious ambience of the shopping centre.

Project details

Requiring meticulous attention to detail and innovation in materials and design, one of the key aspects involved the full design of custom glass steel window systems, which were crafted to enhance both aesthetic appeal and functionality. These windows not only needed to showcase YSL’s products but also had to withstand the rigors of daily retail operations.

In addition to the windows, our team was entrusted with the design and implementation of custom glass fiber reinforced concrete (GRC) cladding. This material was chosen for its versatility and ability to be molded into intricate shapes while maintaining durability and weather resistance.

Prior to installation, our team conducted rigorous custom testing on the GRC to ensure it met both our stringent quality standards and YSL’s expectations for longevity and visual impact.

Our process

Throughout the project, collaboration was key. Our team worked closely with Yves Saint Laurent’s design team based in Hong Kong, ensuring that every aspect of the facade design aligned with the brand’s global standards and design ethos.
This collaboration not only facilitated smooth communication but also enabled us to incorporate YSL’s specific design preferences seamlessly into the final product.

Completion of the facade design represents a harmonious blend of architectural innovation, material expertise, and brand identity. It stands as a testament to our team’s dedication to delivering superior results in high-end retail environments, where precision, aesthetic sensitivity, and functionality converge to create memorable and impactful spaces.
