Hermès of Paris Parfumerie, New York

Hermès of Paris is expanding their luxury brand by launching new stand-alone perfumeries modeled as “scent libraries”. As Executive Architect, Spacesmith rendered the prototype working in concert with Hermès’ in house design team RDAI and RF Studio architects. Nestled in the heart of Brookfield Place in the World Financial Center, the curved glass façade looks out onto the main atrium. 

For all locations, the millwork and built-in cabinetry are custom made; fabricated in a temperature controlled environment. Hermès’ iconic mosaic tiles and cherry wood paneling mixed with Mamorino stucco panels are a part of every store design. Their iconic scarves are displayed like works of art along the walls.
