T. Georgiano's Shoe Salon

Sarasota, FL

Mr. Del Vescovo co-designed this Award Winning shoe salon while on staff at JPA. He was an integral part of the design team as well as the Supervisor for the permit documentation set. He interfaced directly with the client to resolve the "fishbowl" condition of previous stores. Mr. Del Vescovo's suggestion of a rotunda at the rear of the store promoted the conversion of browsers into consumers by giving them an opportunity to engage with the products in lieu of simply walking past. He was also instrumental in contract negotiations between his firm, the client and the property management company, Casto Lifestyle Centers.

The final result produces a uniquely refined shopping experience as the interplay of geometric forms engages the guests and leads them through the environment.
