Holt Renfrew Nods to its Haute Heritage

Part of our feature on four retail environments with dazzling art installations.

The interior of Square One’s newest anchor, Holt Renfrew, includes nods to both timeless style and today’s top trends – not that we’d expect anything less from the seasoned vet of Canada’s luxury department-store scene. Take, for instance, the ceiling sculpture by Commute Design that hangs in the two-storey atrium. Made of laser-cut brass sheets, the 4.57 metre-wide fixture renders a classic architectural form – the geodesic dome – in fashionable brass.
