Anne Barakat is an Architecture and Design Strategy studio specializing in retail, hospitality, and speculative design projects. Whether it be the warm, modern Hotel Vermont, the beautiful Anthropologie flagship store at Rockefeller Center, New York City, or té casan—an Israeli high-end women’s shoe company located on prime real estate in SoHo neighborhood of New York City, Anne Barakat has thrived on providing innovative, cutting-edge design solutions, managing outstanding project teams, and administrating projects from concept through to construction. Anne Barakat’s ingenuity and collaborative spirit make us an invaluable project partner worldwide with over 18 years of experience.
Our approach of working is to deeply connect the emotional and sensory persona of the brand to the possibilities of a profoundly personal experience—and translating that code into a built environment with art and innovation as the leading edge. To this end, we always start by becoming immersed in the content—the story that the experience is intended to tell. This content in turn sparks design, giving shape to the concept that will ultimately become the design approach. Along this design path, we work closely with our client and project partners, sharing ideas, providing possibilities, and continuously hearing feedback.
Our attention to detail is unparalleled. Every bit of the brand story we tell is deliberate and designed to its full extent. The success of our process is evidenced in our high-profile work that also include other such clients as Urban Outfitters, Coca-Cola, and Ben & Jerry’s as well as a plethora of others.
