Store Design, Independence Visitor Center

Philadelphia, PA

Ghostlike images of Philadelphia architecture on illuminated glass panels greet visitors to the 2,000 SF retail store at the U.S. National Park Service site adjacent to the Liberty Bell Pavilion. The space provides an open, flexible, and elegant interior to accommodate periodic rushes of customers. The design features Georgian proportions and details, transformed with contemporary materials. The images of buildings are contained in a wall graphic display that draws shoppers deeper into the store.
