In May of 2010, Govan Brown was acquired by Judith and Charles to build-out a 1,100 square foot space in Calgary’s The CORE shopping centre. The trendy boutique, once known as Teenflo, desired a space that would reflect the sophistication of their clothing. The intended goal of the Judith and Charles project was to create a high-end store indicative of their clientele that would have a lasting impression on the boutique’s patrons. The ultimate goal of the Judith and Charles build-out was to create a space that would highlight and complement their clothing.  Govan  Brown  accom-

plished the anticipated objective by building custom steel hang-bar fixtures, glass shelving and back-lit platforms. These custom elements, among many others, work to accommodate the clean and precise cuts of the store’s elegant inventory. Furthermore, the unique storefront is a collection of locally available and recycled resources. The combination of clear tempered glass doors, back-lit signage and stainless steel banding, reflect the un-derstated beauty of Judith and Charles’ products. Despite working with an aggressive schedule, limited budget and onsite

design revisions by the client, Govan Brown, through diligent interaction with both trades and design consultants, was able to complete the project on time. Judith and Charles represent the progress of Canadian business in international markets. The evolution of the company from a local clothing store into a renowned name in the fashion industry is a triumph desired by any business. Govan Brown was happy to work with an inspired client who specializes in providing quality products for their customers.
