Cape May, NJ
Summer 2013

The galvanic Store is an 1100 square foot retail store on the Washington Street Mall in Cape May, NJ. The existing building (a historical Victorian house which formerly housed a gifts and tchotchke shop) was completely gutted to accommodate the new design (which included a new mezzanine office space). In accordance with the client's desire for a "rough, industrial" aesthetic, a new concrete floor was poured and polished, and the walls were lined with reclaimed wood. In contrast, Stokes Architecture designed a number of sleek, modern display units that reflect the hip, street-art culture that the store represents.
