PARIS, June 1 — Alexander McQueen’s Paris boutique has won the second edition of the Prix Versailles for Commercial Architecture, reports Women’s Wear Daily.
A jury of architects and cultural experts weighed in to choose the Rue Saint-Honoré boutique for its ability to integrate with its landscape, its exterior architecture, interior design and services.
While last year’s inaugural competition judged boutiques in France only, this year’s contest was opened up to those internationally, with successful projects from Cambodia, the US, India and Brazil. Ganjam’s jewellery boutique in Bangalore, India was awarded the interior store prize, while furniture store TOG-Philippe Starck in Sao Paulo, Brazil won for best store exterior. — AFP-Relaxnews
