2. Firm: Slade Architecture
Project: Flight Club
Site: Los Angeles
Standout: For its West Coast expansion, the kicks mecca continues the gallerylike vibe established in the Manhattan store via a simple palette of sealed concrete, perforated sanded aluminum, and raw plywood.
3. Firm: Checkland Kindleysides

4. Firm: Flip Ziedses Des Plantes
Project: “FZDP x Filling Pieces”
Standout: Design firm and footwear brand, both Dutch, teamed up for a fashion week exhibition, in which 150 concrete pillars and “botanical clouds” nodded to the label’s inspiration from architecture, nature, and urban culture.
