• Renascentia, a brand specializing in the sale of handicraft products such as handbags, shoes and jewelry, has opened its new flagship store inside of the historical palace Tornaquinci della Stufa in Florence, Italy. The space was designed by local studio Giraldi Associates Architects.

  • The concept of the space was designed around the existing architecture.

  • The more modern fixturing and colorful bags are an interesting contrast with the historical architecture of the palace.

  • On the ground floor, there is a courtyard topped with a skylight. Around the courtyard are the areas with decorated vaulted ceilings, columns with capitals made of pietra serena stone, and a terracotta floor.

  • The first floor does not feature the palace’s original architecture, and is more modern and open. This floor features accessories and clothing.

  • The store is designed in an open layout, to allow for the easy flow of a lot of customers.

  • Custom furnishings were designed using materials such as bronze, marble, iron, and glass printed with floral accents.
