Supreme Brooklyn store features skating bowl
The new Supreme Brooklyn store features a free-standing skate bowl, merging leisure and retail for the famous streetwear brand.
The space was designed by New York firm Neil Logan Architect and is located inside a retrofitted warehouse, once used for parking delivery trucks, as design news source Dezeen reports.
As Dean Kaufman’s photographs show, the architects left the brick walls exposed and large industrial-style skylights bathe the space in natural light.
Supreme is an edgy skate, fashion and apparel brand founded in New York in 1994, which gained massive international brand exposure in a collaboration with Louis Vuitton last year.
The Supreme Brooklyn store store-cum-skatepark spans 2938sqft, with an open-plan retail area at the front, and a section for storage and skateboarding towards the rear.
The free-standing skate bowl was designed by Steven Bladgett of American art collective Simparch and custom-built with Baltic birch plywood. The structure is supported by a series of red poles around its perimeter, providing enough height for skateboarders to drop into the bowl and for fitting rooms to be housed underneath.
