Crate and Barrel, located in The Shops Around Lenox, received the Silver Award in Retail Store Design from The International Council of Shopping Centers U.S. Design and Development Awards. The Awards honor and recognize the premier design and development trends of retail projects, new developments, renovation and expansion projects, and retail store design within the United States.
Designed by Good Fulton & Farrell Architects and the Crate and Barrel Architecture Department, Crate and Barrel Atlanta was designed as two overlapping volumes with a two-story glass façade to create transparency and bring natural light into the selling space. The 25,000-square-foot store, a relocation from a nearby mall, has a façade of white brick and western red cedar that exudes light and color alongside a projecting canopy that folds into a landscape planter. Natural light and wood planks, character-grade oak flooring, white brick and stone give warmth to the modern interior space. Linear skylights and punched windows accentuate the décor. And Crate and Barrel, for the first time, utilized many prefabrication techniques during construction.
