Pont Rouge, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Cheungvogl has created an open exhibition retail space around a robotic system within the restoration of the 110 year old iconic department store, Au Pont Rouge in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The recently completed addition of a spa and treatment concept extends the social hub experience of Au Pont Rouge.
Inside the spa and treatment areas, one room is dedicated to self-reflection and the art of selfies. The “Selfie Room”, a testing and sample room, creates a stage for visitors to feel like performers, models and directors of the self-image at the same time.
The flexible and multi-functional Multi-space invites the public to engage in unexpected programs and events such as workshops, fashion shows, screenings, lectures, exhibitions and art performances, transforming Au Pont Rouge from a niche retail environment into an interactive social and cultural destination beyond its historical meaning to Saint Petersburg.
