Designed by Architect Chloe Naughton in collaboration with Daniel Wilson, Kind Curations was established in February 2018 as part of the Richard & Spence designed Cornerstone Stores precinct. As a new venture for owners Kasey Attard and Sam Treffers, there were a lot of unknowns in creating a new bricks and mortar retail business, which were addressed with a modular design that allowed for flexibility and adaptation. Luckily so, as just 9 months down the track the opportunity to expand into the tenancy next door presented itself which was willingly taken up.
The interior of Kind Curations is composed of modular elements made with birch plywood and radiata pine dowel. The materials present a subtle and tactile backdrop that complement the aesthetics and ethos of the responsibly made and thoughtfully designed products for sale. The dowel detail is a consistent feature that continues throughout the store and serves different purposes. The joinery visually warms and softens the concrete floor and ceiling, providing a relaxed atmosphere for this coastal location.
