Gonzalez Haase have transformed a storage hall in the former industrial outskirts of Marvila in Lisbon into the Tem-plate, a high-end fashion and design concept store.

The building is located in the creative district of Marvila, between the city center of Lisbon and the grounds of Expo 98. The once deserted storage halls and factory buildings of the industrial coastal suburb have been revived by art galleries, workshops, concert halls and markets, becoming a gathering spot for young pioneers of the contemporary creative scene.

The interior comprises a balance of grey, brown, and silver tones, some of which are mirrored, some of which are matte, establishing a contrast to the transparent and semi-transparent surfaces. The original concrete floors of the warehouse have been retained, sanded down, and brightened with a matte protective layer. At the back, a curtain wall of silver-grey polycarbonate divides the space into separate service areas.

The 800-square-metre store serves as an exhibition space that regularly undergoes changes in setup. Fashion and furniture items are re-curated on a monthly basis, with the result that the space is used in new ways. Gonzalez Haase have made the former storage hall the perfect setting for Tem-plate’s flexible concept. Windows in bands of coffers in the white ceiling decrease in distance further back into the room, thus ensuring harmonious natural lighting.
