Unknown Union is a boutique retail experience that features an international roster of fashion collections. The shop’s design integrates architectural elements salvaged from the original 18th century colonial Dutch residential building that had fallen into disrepair. A ground floor maze of multi-colored ombré display units, columns, and shelves were produced using local artisans and materials.  Pockets within the maze are cordoned off to accommodate dressing rooms and storage.  A contrasting, patterned web of fluorescent fixtures illuminates the display units, and act as a primitive chandelier in the  double-height space.
