Ballantyne Jewelers

Project Size 14,277 sf

The team at S.C. Hondros & Associates, Inc. worked closely with Aydin Tekin and Sami Tekin, owners of Ballantyne Jewelers, to design and build their new 7,100 s.f. elegant retail space in the Toringdon area of Ballantyne in South Charlotte. The interior of the store, designed by Grid 3 International of New York City, features wood paneled doors and walls, marble tile floors and winding wood and glass display cases. The space incorporates the main showroom, private viewing rooms, offices, jewelers’ workroom, vault, and break room.

The in-house design team at S.C. Hondros & Associates, Inc. generated several schematic plans to present to the Tekin family to ensure that their vision was realized in the design of their new store. The elegant building finishes complement the sophistication and stylishness of the jewelry and custom work designed, fabricated, and sold in the store. Gypsum board radius sofitts at the ceiling mirror the layout of the showcases below to create a dramatic effect.

The jewelry store encompasses roughly one half of the brick veneer shell building, with the second half ready to upfit for an office or retail tenant. Design and construction challenges were overcome in order for the building to complement the existing architecture of Toringdon and to develop a striking design at an economical price.
