Philippines Duty Free: Duty Free Development

We were appointed by Philippines Duty Free to create the concept for its new luxury downtown store in Manila. The luxe shopping experience will be the first of its kind for the Philippines and its fast developing capital city.

“We developed the concept for the first downtown Duty Free store in Manila, a premium retail environment for luxury retail brands. The project is due for completion in 2016.” Doug Barber, MD

The Luxe Store will be the most spectacular couture destination in the Philippines and will be located in the heart of the shopping and entertainment district, close to the Mall of Asia and new 5 and 7 star luxury hotels and casinos. We created a store concept with influences from local and international architecture, creating a structure inline with the surroundings and sympathetic to local culture. A considered synergy between the traditional and modern, resulting in an outstanding venue that offers a range of luxury international brands across a number of product categories to affluent Filipino and international visitors. The store also includes an exclusive area for a fine dining experience. This project defines aspirational and luxury shopping in Manila and will set the standard for Filipino and international tourists wherever they travel in Asia.
