The souk is the ultimate marketplace; a concentration of innovation and tradition, diversity and intimacy. It pulses with the richness of overlapping cultures as goods and people come together. Completed in 2008, Villa Moda showcases the rich artisanship of local craftsman, motifs and techniques, re-interpreted with Western eyes. Theses local crafts were used to compose a complex textured scheme, adding depth to an otherwise modest black and white color palette, leaving color for the guests. The 1050m2 store in Bahrain is laid out like a small city, each building housing a specific department or brand. As clients shop within this “International Souk”, they are treated to be a bevy of innovative luxury brands.
Located in Bahrain, Villa Moda was completed in 2008.
