Independent watchmaking pioneer F.P.Journe has moved his New York boutique from Manhattan’s Upper East Side to 53 Mercer Street in SoHo.
The new space showcases Journe’s watches in sleek display cases amid small lounges, a bar and a library filled with books on watchmaking.
At the center of the space is a large chandelier created by Mexican-Brazilian artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga, similar to those in Journe’s boutiques in Los Angeles and Miami.
Upstairs, the new store offers a kitchen, a wine cellar and a large room where the watchmaker plans to host dinners and receptions.
The space’s architects were careful to retain some of the building’s original red brick walls in order to recall the industrial history of the SoHo district.
