Pave by Joan Sandoval

  • Posted by SHFT on May 29, 2012 in Transportation
  • In all types of design, the happiest place is where simplicity, utility and beauty intersect. Pave, a Barcelona road bike shop designed by architect Joan Sandoval, is nicely ensconced in that happy spot.

    The clean, minimal build-out features back-lit boxes for displaying bikes, a cycling lit library where visitors can hang out and drink coffee, a lounge area for watching races, and showers for cyclists to freshen up after a ride. 

    By displaying product on the walls, Sandoval's design departs from the typical cluttered feel of most cycling shops, while allowing prospective buyers a chance to test out bikes within the store.
