Since 2005, TPG has served as the Executive Architect for the international luxury retailer Salvatore Ferragamo. Over the years, we have partnered with the client assisting them on a range of projects including flagship stores, shop-in-shops, neighborhood stores, and retail mall stores across the country and in Canada. With all their designs coming from Firenze, Italy, our team worked in conjunction with Ferragamo’s U.S. design team, as well as their design team in Italy. The firm has provided services to Salvatore Ferragamo for an array of store concepts, successfully completing 15 locations ranging in size from approximately 250 to 10,000 square feet.
Our breadth of work spans from renovations of existing stores to new store designs. Our firm assisted the luxury retailer on the remodel and expansion of their flagship store at the Shops at Bal Harbour in Bal Harbour, Florida. For this project, we partnered with the Salvatore Ferragamo store design team in Italy to execute the remodel and expansion of their existing ground level store and an expansion to the second floor. The ground floor is comprised of women’s shoes, bags, and accessories, while the second floor is a designated men’s store for shoes, bags, and accessories. A grand staircase connects customers between floors, and an elevator was also installed. Two storefronts create an equal presence for both the ground and second floor of the shops. Additionally, our firm has also worked with the client on a number of shop-in-shop stores that are featured in Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Saks stores across the country.
Our retail design professionals are skilled in working with international clients like Salvatore Ferragamo and adapting to their standards and difference in measurement systems. Our team is accustomed to handling metric system conversions, as well as aggressive schedules to abide by the retail business operations. In addition to the synergy of personalities between our retail team and Ferragamo’s design team, TPG’s level of service and attention to detail help to foster our ongoing relationship.
