Retail Architectural design requires the combination of various areas of expertise.
Most retail architectural designs are quite different from normal architecture projects in that they require combining industrial design, interior design and graphic design skills.
Retail architecture is a very specialized area of architecture due to the specific demands placed on retail space. Retail space is specifically designed allow a relaxed and enjoyable environment for consumers, and allow for stock to be displayed in an efficient manner. The areas must provide a pleasant shopping experience for the consumer.
The design must be cater to the type of product being displayed. Some retail space requires shelving to display smaller items, like books. Other designs need to cater to larger spaces required to accommodate stock such as clothing.
Retail spaces, especially when part of a retail chain, must also be designed to draw people into the space to shop. The front of the store must act as a billboard for the business. It is often required to allow for large display windows to allow shoppers to view the space and the product inside.
