Rox, Argyll Arcade

Creation of a new jewellery retail concept in the ROX flagship store with upstairs “thrill room” and champagne bar.

Working again for Fitzsimons Cost Consultants and Project Management with Graven Images design, we conducted a programme of works to transform two old fashioned jewellery stores into a very successful retail concept.

Following the general downtakings (including the protection and preservation of existing features) a number of structural alterations were carried out; a large glazed skylight and atrium at the centre of the premises with a fully mirrored ceiling to the thrill room with chandeliers, display table and traditional cabinetry. The ground floor was also significantly altered and reworked with adjacent and basement back shop and office facilities.

Numerous custom manufacture items were design developed, manufactured and installed in this multi-trade tight programme and access project to convey the desired theme and atmosphere.

The overall result is a very successful retail concept.
