Do you ever walk into a men's boutique and wonder why it suffers from the dark, dreary wood-stained look? Architecture at Large refuses to succumb to this dominating style and instead throws colorful flair into Cape Town's Unknown Union men's boutique.

The store is vibrating with vivacious color that really brightens up the room the instant you step foot into the clothing store. Fluorescent blues, yellows and greens are done in block colors on all cupboards and shelves. To contrast these vivid shades, the wall is kept completely white adding a sense of stylistic simplicity to the store's layout. Architecture at Large's designer Rafael de Cárdenas really shows off his originality and talent with this design, demonstrating that dark and mysterious is not always the way to go when it comes to attracting customers.
