Blauel Architects: Holts Jewellers, Hatton Garden, London

Blauel Architects has added a contemporary facade to a jeweller’s shop in the historic jewellery quarter of Hatton Garden in central London. Precious stones are exhibited throughout the store in a fissure-like display system that looks like something abstractedly geological. The fissure is painted in white on its horizontal surfaces, concentrating light (and the customer’s attention) on the merchandise. The interior of the shop is arranged in a circle, with display shelves surrounding a space that the architect compares to a trading floor.
