Colibri Gastromarket

LOCATION: Almaty, Kazakhstan
STATUS: Completed
YEAR: 2015

A boutique mall dedicated to cater high-quality home appliances and a food and drinks supermarket comprised of several spaces, with a high-standard selection of products and brands unique to Kazakhstan. The interior design proposal for the grocery store is based around providing a better shopping experience for customers and let the gastronomic display speak for itself, highlighting the gourmet qualities of the products sold in the market in a modern appearance and a neutral palette. Wood, white ceramic tiles and stone are the main materials employed to exhibit the colorful array of products in a clean, minimalistic way, with interesting details like latticed woodwork in the ceiling. Spaciousness is another key feature of the supermarket, and an industrial feel has been applied by exposing pipes and ventilation units. The space is comprehensively divided into different sections which lack of physical divisions to make the shopping experience a practical and most importantly, a pleasurable one.
