On three amalgamated sites on paddington's Oxford Street, in Sydney sits the new Robby Ingham store.

From the oposite side of the road the building appears to be 3 separate shop fronts that are intended for differing uses.

Yet upon closer viewing it quickly becomes apparent that there is only 1 entry and the display windows suggest an unexpected quality of light, expansiveness and warmthin a combined interior

With this project Engelen Moore have been created both a provocative and highly experimental building while being able to rationalise Robby Inghams' retail space to increase their quality and efficiency

3 Victorian terrace houses in Oxford Street Paddington comprise the Robby Ingham Stores. 2 of these terraces have been extensively gutted and restructured to form a 2 level emporium. The third terrace has had a partial refurbishment to the street level only leaving back of house functions on the upper level. A clear demarcation between new and old has been developed through the use of materials, colour and spatial arrangement. The existing timber floors have been retained in the original street front shops, with both walls and ceilings.

The existing timber floors have been retained in the original street front shops, with both walls and ceilingspainted in a similar colour to the timber. The new double height space to the rear has a grey linoleum floor, grey walls and ceilings, a new glass and steel stair, aluminium louvres and a glazed rear wall allowing views of a large frangipani tree in a rear courtyard. The Dieter Rams designed 606 universal shelving system and Kreon track lighting are the two elements which are employed in both new and old zones, uniting the two and providing an extremely flexible display system for the constantly changing seasonal clothing and accessories.
