Void Interior Furnishings opened its doors to the public in 1999. By 2002, the store’s finishes were showing signs of age, particularly the floor. CORE Architects were brought on board to improve circulation throughout the showroom.
The showroom suffered from being comprised of three main rooms and a mezzanine with no relation with each other. As part of the circulation improvements, CORE relocated access to the upper mezzanine to the front of the store with a new walnut stair to give customers a visual cue into three areas of the showroom from one vantage point. To match the finish of the new staircase, a walnut laminated floor replaced the painted concrete floor. New handrails of clear and etched glass with stainless were added.
