Little Ludlow takes reference from The Ludlow Formation, of the previous year for the same client, into how to deal with the banality of generic conditions, interpret place/location, and a desire to react to the "sheen" of the usual airport retail spaces. The tenancy engages with the existing Terminal layout by breaking away elements of existing barriers, asserting presence through designed signage and "statement" feature walls. Customers are drawn through the tenancy around the elongated, multi-directional bar structures and crafted intimate spaces.
The immense verticality of the space is mediated by using delicately engineered stepping steel canopies, oversized cylindrical graphic/signage drums and an 8m high tiled and recycled timber clad feature which counter balances the adjacent tenancy built forms
