Ode is a thriving women's clothing boutique in Downtown Northampton, Massachusetts. Not only a clothing store, they also host events for local artists, and donate 5% of their profits to a good cause every month. The design for this commercial space embraces the history embedded in the existing structure, materials, and textures, and reveals them as architectural elements. Simple, clean forms, efficient space planning, and raw finishes give the space an industrial feel that becomes an ideal backdrop for the elegance of women’s clothing, poetry readings, and art gatherings.
