The Rachel Comey store in Los Angeles, California, is located on Melrose Place in West Hollywood. 

All interior finishes including floors, ceilings, and all walls were removed to seamlessly connect the three buildings that make up the store. Floor elevations were leveled, existing wood joists were exposed, and decades of paint was sandblasted to provide the rich, warm finish of the exposed aged wood throughout the space. Corrugated metal, lacquered fixtures, a custom brick table and terra cotta-colored cement floors provide the backdrop for unique furniture and Rachel’s collection. 

A large central skylight was custom made to provide natural light and a perceived center above the shoe display. Additionally, large, North-facing sawtooth skylights were built to create unique, architectural dressing rooms with flattering, natural light.
