"The Best Value for Your Home"
COMMERCIAL |ZAMBOANGA CITY | JULY 2021
Hardware Stores nowadays are a dime a dozen, everywhere you see the over-saturation of these stores, which is kind of a good thing considering the Construction Industry in the Philippines is still in high demand. Hardware stores usually have an Industrial facade, and rightfully so, given the magnitude of Construction materials and supplies it houses. But what if that weren't the case? What if a Hardware Store is reflective of a well-built and Designed structure that is a clear-cut outcome of the diverse Construction materials it houses. This is one of the Design Challenges that our client wanted us to consider to Design a Modernized Hardware Store.
Located on the East Coast of Zamboanga City, this modernized Hardware store was carefully designed to be aesthetically identifiable from the Main Thoroughfare. Where, all the intrinsic details like the light wood cladding, accent walls, concrete pavement patterns, stonework and signages can be easily seen and appreciated. Our Design Team opted to incorporate large glass panels and canopies to give the overall design a Modern Tropical character.
Our Team was also tasked to design the Store Logo as well as the Billboard Signage and incorporate it in the overall Architectural Design. Positioned and allocated carefully to be proportionate to the building while at the same not intrusive or exessive. The Planter Boxes gives the Facade Design a certain character that stays true to the Modern Tropical feel, that consequently creates a buffer zone from the public to service entrances. The heart of the operations lies in the 314 SQM Warehouse located at the rear part of the property that constitutes roughly around 40% of the overall lot area.
The interiors of this structure was designed to house an office Space, a Modernized Cashier and Information Center, Male and Female Toilets and a maximized but well design Commercial space where all the items are properly displayed and segregated that is easily identifiable to buyers or consumers. Typically hardware Stores have High Double Volume Ceilings, to maximize the commercial space, a Mezzanine floor was incorporated to house the Lighting Fixtures and Accessories Section, while the lobby's double volume ceiling was intended to showcase the assortment of Ceiling Lamps this branch has to offer.
