Kings Arcade is a historic arcade that connects Armadale train station to High Street. Shop 5, along the eastern flank of stores, central to the arcade and the only store to retain its original leadlight clerestory window, is the location of the inaugural Loom Towels Store. The store fitout was conceived as a paired-back contemporary insertion that enables the original sites histories to become more visible. The space accommodates a large and inviting counter, a series of floating display shelves, an industrial sized basin and a place to rest while contemplating the evocative textile designs.

The poetic discord of remnants of a butcher’s shop found within a contemporary textile store is exploited and enjoyed, reflecting the client’s own playful approach to design. Bold block colours have been carefully selected to juxtaposition against the raw textures of the historic site and indeed of the textiles found within. This pairing of old and new continues throughout the design with stainless steel highlights, refined edges and contemporary fittings and fixtures.
