To keep the architectural space free from heavy interventions, Zooco Estudio designed a customizable modular system for the Nuilea cosmetics shop in Madrid.
Nuilea, is a space dedicated to the sale of cosmetic products where the client asked Zooco Estudio to keep the existing premises, reducing the execution time and considering the natural origin of the products.
The result is the insertion of a modular, stackable system, that serves both as storage and display. This formula gives the space a new topography, respecting the original configuration. The structure is made of two modular elements and a 40 x 40 cm wooden cube, which is used to play with solids and voids. The selection of materials express the natural origin of the products. Textile is used for the lower areas of customer access, together with stone, for the wet areas. White has been applied for the upper storage cubes, mimicking the existing wall.
