In the spring of 2006, Barneys New York opened a flagship store in the upscale Copley Place shopping center in Boston, Massachusetts. For the location’s internal façade JHA devised a dramatic entry as a way of defining the start of the Barneys experience: a two-story glass and black metal Mondrian-inspired wall, creating a beacon-like entrance to draw customers inside—even from the center of the development. The 45,000 square-foot open-air space centers around a Y-shaped staircase that leads up to a large skylight, letting natural light pour in. Luxurious materials and rich detailing soften the modernist style of the development, including a marble mosaic and limestone floor, and a working fireplace in the women’s shoe department that creates a warm environment in the often-cold Boston climate.
