Recent representative projects under Virginia’s direction include multiple locations of the following stores:
Jenni Kayne Home Store
SoHo, New York, NY
Located in the heart of New York’s SoHo, the store features all the architectural details suited to the city, including lofty ceilings, original hardwood floors and brick work, as well as vintage lighting, British Standard cabinetry, Waterworks fixtures, and shades from Portola Paints. At this flagship Jenni Kayne Home store, customers can shop in real-room environments and have their choices quickly delivered to their homes.
The Traditional DTLA
Los Angeles, CA
The vibrant lobby of Traditional DTLA’s Flagship Cannabis Dispensary transitions customers from the outside and submerges them into a fully saturated color experience. A lobby retail section allows customers to purchase non-controlled items without entering the dispensary. Inside, customers are met with more bright pops of color, round kiosks mimicking the brand’s iconic packaging, a view into the cannabis grow room, and a large-format video wall. The perimeter retail space is segmented to feature rotating partner brands in customizable shops-in-shop.
New York, NY
Men’s active wear label Rhone worked with RDC to design the brand’s 1,500-square-foot flagship in the Flatiron District at 133 Fifth Avenue. The location features a modern design that evokes movement, using metal and light woods and features furniture from Herman Miller and Design Within Reach. The store is Rhone’s third permanent location in Manhattan and the largest of the three. RDC provided architect of record services, including construction documentation, permit administration and construction administration.
