Archtober Building of the Day: Xocolatti
When: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20
Where:172 Prince Street (between Sullivan and Thompson Streets)
Xocolatti is a new premium chocolate brand, with its first flagship location in New York City's Soho. Designed by de spec inc., the concept for the 150 square foot space lies in eliminating the traditional barriers of a storefront and window display instead creating an interactive vitrinelike space that seamlessly integrates with the streetscape. The walls are lined with custom designed, floor to ceiling bronze shelving systems that are based on the multiple variations of the different sizes of the green and brown chocolate boxes.
The store visit will be led by Farnaz Mansuri, Assoc. AIA, and Tom Shea of de spec inc.
This tour is SOLD OUT. Given tour size limits, we regret that we will not be able to admit additional attendees who are not on the confirmed registration list.
