Louis Vuitton Launches Floating Store In Singapore

Louis Vuitton's has just launched it first Maison store in Southeast Asia. Situated on the waterfront of the Marina Bay Sands, the futuristic design was done by award-winning architect Peter Marino. The four-storey island maison is the luxury brand's first in South-east Asia and 12th in the world. And if you think the exterior is impressive, just wait till you step inside. From Wallpaper.com:
In the more intimate lower rooms, which house fine jewellery and the men's 'universe', Marino covered the floors and panelled the walls in shipbuilding timber buffed to the nines like a Monte Carlo cruiser. An angular staircase with a nautical balustrade cuts across the place and carries visitors up past a Ruben Toledo cityscape to the sun-splashed upper decks. Here, floating ceilings and window shades angled like trapezoidal sails control the natural light yet maximise the 360-degree views; Marino positioned the showrooms around the core of the building, so shoppers can look out from the perimeter.
If you're planning on paying a visit (and you will pay), you can access the flagship by either bridge, a 'travelator' which ascends into the centre of
the showroom from an underground tunnel or by private boat.
