Camera World, one of the largest mail order camera supply stores in the U.S., selected the 400 SW Sixth Ave. building to expand their existing retail outlet. They hired GBD in 1996 to design a state-of-the art outlet for retail sales of camera supplies, video cameras, home theater systems and televisions.
The buildout included the addition of a 1,350 sq. foot mezzanine for office and storage, three acoustically isolated sound rooms for home theater sales, a 12 ft. by 12 ft. video wall, a 300-gallon fish tank, a video bar, and custom-designed display cabinets for specialty camera sales.
During the first month of operation, Camera World saw a 200 percent increase in sales.
