This Warsaw Store Boasts Church-Inspired Interior Architecture

The Run Colors Warsaw store is the second brick-and-mortar location for the footwear retailer. The prismatic inventory is perfectly merchandised on the arched shelves that form the basis of the interior Gothic-inspired ceiling.

Designed by mode:lina architekci, the store is situated in the heart of Old Town Warsaw, specifically located within a UNESCO's World Heritage Site zone. The Run Colors Warsaw store has also been designed to be ideal for hosting a variety of in-store events for brand fans and VIP clientele.

A playful reference to the deeply spiritual connections between sneakerheads and shoes, the space features arched ceilings inspired by that of a Gothic cathedral. Again playing up the religious imagery, the shelves are occasionally lit so that they appear like stained glass windows.
