The New York–based architecture firm Gabellini Sheppard is known for its quietly detailed work and careful attention to the way materials are joined. The Jil Sander store featured here demonstrates Michael Gabellini’s (American, b. 1958) forte in creating stark, modernist spaces shrouded behind historic façades. The floating planes that display the clothing, punctuated by the delicate lines of the light fixtures and racks, are characteristic of Gabellini’s architectural compositions.
