• Located in Miami’s high-end Brickell neighborhood, Atelier De Yavorsky designed the men’s boutique Wolf to be luxurious yet natural. Taking inspiration from the animal it’s named after, creative director Guillermo de Yavorsky used key elements within the architecture to create a space that is precise, linear and masculine.

  • Miami is known for its beaches and serene weather, so Atelier De Yavorsky used the sea and the sky to create a color scheme of soft blues to deep navy. The herringbone limestone wall and the “gull” hangers act as additional references to the ocean, as does the coral stone fossil floor.

  • The upscale boutique emulates the wolf in spirit and in style. The entire store was designed with simplicity in mind, with linear elements all throughout. From the lines separating the blue hues to the gold lines throughout the store, the strategic line work creates a geometric space that is in line with the sharp angles of the wolf’s face and body. The color selection evokes a tangible connection with nature, while the wood used in the hangers, chairs, display tables and walls add warmth as a balance.

  • Upon closer look, there are unexpected facets within the store, like the lighting underneath the glass shelves and the seeming lack of a formal cashier.

  • Atelier De Yavorsky took into account the luxuriousness of the clientele while still creating a multifaceted space with a selection of core materials: one kind of wood, a specific type of metal, and two kinds of off-white stone. The bench, designed by de Yavorsky, is one of the signature pieces within the boutique that acts as a tenable connection to nature.

     

  • Graphic designer Alexandra de Yavorsky approached the design of the Wolf logo in the same way as the architecture, and used the same geometric line work that can be seen throughout the boutique to bring Wolf to life.
