MRTN Architects, Double Monk – IDEA 2020

MRTN Architects, Double Monk

Handmade English men’s shoes are the unabashed heroes of Double Monk shoe store. The quality craftsmanship of the footwear, use of fine leathers and a long history associated with the makers is vividly portrayed in the store design. Layering involved in both the shoe making and sales presentation processes is echoed in the space, which is as much a parlour or saloon as it is a shop – deserving of a lingering visit.
