Archetype China completes Galeries Lafayette’s flagship in Shanghai

Archetype China is proud to announce our completed mission on Galeries Lafayette Department Store in Shanghai, which has made its opening on the 23rd of March.

For this high-end department store, we had been appointed to carry out the technical design, construction management and cost management services.

Galeries Lafayette Group co-developed their stores in China with Hong Kong’s multi-brand fashion house I.T. Galeries Lafayette China was founded in September 2010 with the remit of launching and running the brand’s department stores in China.

Located within the L+ Mall, a shopping complex in the heart of Shanghai’s new dynamic neighborhood. Galeries Lafayette covers an area of 25,000 square meters across five floors, and is designed to be a fashion destination, showcasing a long list of high-end fashion pieces from around the world as well as domestic designer brands. The hip and young fashion products are housed in an equally bold and striking store design, which focuses strongly on catering for quality-conscious consumers and their shopping experience.
