Cellular Fantasy, Santa Monica, California. Renovation of an existing landmark bank building, into the flagship retail store and corporate headquarters of an independent cellular phone company.
A fabric theatrical scrim transfigured an existing stained glass window into a constantly changing abstract backdrop for the ground floor retail space and the corporate offices above.
The exterior of the building with a historically significant facade and mosaic mural by a California regional artist, was left intact and restored.
All workstations and retail pods were custom designed and fabricated for the project. *Photo credits: Tim Street-Porter and Marvin Rand.
