VERDEGO, a Venice based interior design firm, is rethinking the idea of public gathering spaces. Working with the surf, skate, and snow communities in Southern California, VERDEGO is currently nearing completion of a 10,000 square foot Quiksilver store in Venice, CA.
Located in the former Sammy’s Camera on Venice and Abbot Kinney Boulevards, the store will feature a “backyard” space that will be reminiscent of various residential gardens throughout Venice. The outdoor garden space will be used for community events and performances by DJs and local bands while the exterior entrance will be skateboarder friendly and will provide boarding space on the side of the building. Additionally, the store will house a connected gallery space towards the rear entrance, and will function as both a gallery and pop-up shop.
The project is slated to be complete mid-November 2011.
