A family-owned supermarket in Forestway, one of Sydney’s northern suburbs, needed an upgrade to make it a more vibrant shopping experience.

Villa+Villa expanded and completely refitted the store, both internally and externally, designing everything from the display shelves to the cashiers’ counters, which not only improved customer experience but also the working environment of the staff.

A new coffee and pizza shop — reflecting the owners’ Italian roots — sits inside the store, encouraging shoppers to linger. Outside, a new external terrace with play equipment entertains the kids too.

Outside, the visibility of the building was lifted, attracting not only regular customers, but new ones as well.
