We don’t put it past Carey Melnichuk, creative director of Secret Location, to outfit their new concept store with a traditional 17th century white paneled wall which melts back to reveal an angular contemporary book shelf! Now stop right there! We know what your’re thinking – the location of the new store was not actually a secret (might have been clever, but borderline gimmicky). This new shop is no secret to the streets of Vancouver, where it is getting an awful lot of attention for a little place! That attention is coming from the sophisticated and twisted interiors designed by Melnichuk, in collaboration with the architects at B+H.
Secret Location is known for selling off-the-shelf design oriented products, and it is the first of it’s kind in the historic Gastown. Melnichuk and B+H created a visually playful space which is 1/2 shop, 1/2 restaurant. Guests can travel from the dining room, through a cool minty green tunnel which leads into the narrow and long 10,000 sq.ft. shop lined with concrete columns and creative display shelving and custom designed tables for clothes, books, cameras, and a collection of worldy accessories!
