Khaite's first global flagship, which is situated at 165 Mercer Street, pays homage to the cultural legacy of SoHo. The interior of the 7,000 SF industrial-meets-natural flagship is defined by steel, glass, and concrete. The space feels akin to an art gallery with an array of impressive structures and design elements ; sculptural steel dividers, a circular "sanctuary" with a skylight a la James Turrell, and a shelf constructed from a single piece of twisted steel. The ground floor houses the brand’s full collection and an expected pop of color in the red-lit, carpeted fitting rooms. The lower level, which includes a VIP room, office, and back-of-house, is reserved for celebs, style insiders, and staff. Our scope of work included a full demolition and interior buildout, new HVAC and electrical systems, and all new interior finishes for both the ground floor and lower level.
