Kendra Scott Scottsdale Quarters

Scottsdale, AZ

SCOPE
Responsible for the design and documentation for this 1,700 square foot shell retail space. Kendra Scott is a jewelry designer based in Austin, Texas but with a presence in major retail stores such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Lord and Taylor. Kendra Scott is unique with their “Color Bar” feature. Here, the customer picks from many jewelry styles, drags and drops the available stones into the virtual piece, and then it is created while you wait in the retail store or is shipped from the website. The “Danielle” earring is one of the most popular models. The Austin company, IonArt, utilized the geometry of the earring and backlit with programmed LEDs, to create a stunning backdrop for the bar where the custom pieces are created. The customers are encouraged to open drawers and cabinets to access the merchandise. Each display is highlighted with LED rope lights to add to the sparkle of the collection and the drawers are lined with a blue linen fabric reminiscent of antique jewelry boxes. The storefront is clad with a perforated metal screen stamped with the Kendra Scott signature medallion. The new canopy overhangs the sidewalk up to 10’ and helps guide people to the store from the parking garage and neighboring spaces.
