The duo behind Berlin-based architecture firm Gonzalez Haase, Pierre Gonzalez and Judith Haase, have completed a new concept store in Lisbon. Tem-Plate treads the boundary between a retail space and art gallery, set in a cavernous warehouse in the industrial-creative area of Marvila in the Portuguese capital.

With a swelling online presence, the store is the first physical outpost for Tem-Plate, the brand’s aesthetic deeply synonymous with edgy luxury street wear. Gonzalez Haase designed the space to complement the clothes displayed, sticking to simple, raw industrial materials. The entrance is carved out of an aluminium roller door, behind which a translucent yellow PVC curtain bars an immediate view of the interior and serves to moderate temperature within the store.

Panels of chipboard coated in silver foil form furniture and partitions. Seats and tables made of untreated aluminium are interspersed with gold ‘Roly Poly’ chairs by British designer Faye Toogood. White LED strip lights cross the length of the space, enhancing the coffered ceiling, stark white walls and smooth, sanded concrete floor. The entire space plays on contrasting matte and reflective elements, with untreated metal and mirrored panels used in tandem with lesser quality materials. A round skeleton rack displays items from Commes Des Garçons, Raf Simons, Maison Margiela and Loewe to name a few.

With constantly rotating collections and merchandise, the architects left the interior elements with a deliberate sense of being unfinished and impermanent. The 800sqm site is equipped to host special installations and events, which there will, no doubt, be any shortage of in the up-and-coming design and arts district – a luxury residential project is by Renzo Piano is under construction just down the street, alongside a slew of boutique galleries and art and design studios.
