With the move-in date for a U.S based competitor fast approaching, Hudson's Bay leveraged BHDP for store planning, design and architectural expertise at the new location.
The first phase of the renovation called for the delivery of creative, strategic design solutions that enhanced the overall guest experience, updated major departments and improved customer touch points. Working from current prototypical design language and palettes, BHDP simplified and married the existing circulation and elevations with new center core concept departments. Finishing touches included new lighting, wood slating, floor-to-ceiling metal fixture frames and unified floor finishes that brought the new look together and positioned the project for a smooth second phase.
