CORE has become the Architect-of-Record for Canadian stores and has provided their retail design and expertise to help La Senza develop their stores as they rebranded over the last few years. Working closely with the La Senza team and the brand’s graphic and bold designs, CORE consciously implements the design intent into working drawings for every store and ensures it meets to national and local provincial codes.
We are also responsible for site services and perform contract administration working with the local authorities and building landlords in conjunction with the engineers that are contracted on the client’s behalf. CORE also provides drawing services for their international UK stores.
Due to the rebranding and trying to implement this concept throughout multiple stores, it has required a lot of coordination and communication with the client to ensure that the quality and design intent is not compromised.
Most of the stores are renovations, phased or retrofits and these require diligent attention to detail to ensure that the necessary elements are thoroughly incorporated to meet the quality and standards of the brand’s design concept.
We have completed over 28 projects for the La Senza brand across Canada and the UK.
