Merle Hay Mall Ulta


Retail – Lifestyle – Renovation

Des Moines, Iowa

Area:    12,000 SF

K/O worked closely with local mall representatives and Ulta corporate staff to modify an existing tenant space to fit the needs of the beauty products retailer.  This store would be the second location of this chain in the Des Moines area.  The store included a new prototypical interior and exterior mall entrance design for Ulta.  This new interior entrance included frameless butt glazed entry windows and doors, brushed aluminum wall panels, and backlit frosted Plexiglas sliding wall panels.  The material pallet used was fresh and clean in appearance but presented several design challenges with this new concept.  The design hurdles were overcome and a timely solution was resolved for the opening of the new store.  K/O worked on the project from start to finish partnering with Ulta’s design architect during construction.
