The construction of Christian Dior Copley Place involved the coordination, installation, and specialized treatment of several high-end materials and millwork pieces. A Unistrut system with threaded rods was used on the ceiling to provide additional support for decorative work. Pierre de Tavel stone was imported from France and used as flooring –the installation of which involved diamond wheel sanding, mirror polish, crystallization with a sander, and waterproofing. In certain areas, the Tavel stone was laid out in an intricate Cannage pattern. Dior’s signature fabric panels are used on the walls, which were also decorated with a custom-made chain curtain and outfitted with Alucobond. A new HVAC unit was installed and electrical systems were upgraded to accommodate the brand’s distinct lighting plan. Built-in wall niches are outfitted with integral lighting and starphire glass shelves, and framed with custom wood molding. This 4,300 square foot project abided by a 32-week construction schedule.
