About Project

The interior of Arsenal firearms store demonstrates the culturally ambivalent relationship to firearms. Here guns are presented as “live” goods and simultaneously as “dead” museum exhibits. This is the main plot twist of the design scenario.

The architectural embodiment of this approach involves a neutral environment that hints at the monumentality of the exhibition. The visitor’s attention is focused on the exhibits (goods) and their presentation.

The polished gray granite walls and floor symbolize affluence - guns are a luxury item.
