Charles Fish Boutique

2005

Charles Fish has been selling fine jewellery in the East End of London for over 150 years. It follows that their new shop at Canary Wharf would mix history and modernity. This project makes a jewellery box out of the shop itself. Retrieved wardrobes and cupboards are half sunk into the walls. They have a deliberate distorting effect on the space, while a new chandelier design by Coates creates a focus over the central display cabinet.
