Shoes Store Fitout Frankston

Project Overview

Client: Platypus Shoes

Location: Karingal Hub, Frankston VIC

Area: 163m2

Case Study

Complete store fitout of Platypus Shoes in Karingal Hub was undertaken in less than four weeks. The 163m2 tenancy of the single level shopping centre is located just out of Frankston CBD, about 50km south east of Melbourne.

Despite the standard challenge of a sloped mall entry floor, obtaining a flush finished floor level from the large, black, square floor tiles bordering the tenancy lease line, transitioning to the grey porcelain tiles of the adjacent mall, the shop fitout of the popular footwear brand was seamless.


Precision plaster installation (completed by the experienced team at All Pro Partitions and Ceilings) and professional ceiling painting (AVS Décor) was necessary to uphold the high-quality workmanship that our Melbourne shopfitting team are known for.

Creative Strokes applied a specialised black concrete, trowelled-finish render to the shopfront columns. This application adds a fresh and modern, yet laidback aesthetic – much like the streetwear shoe brands housed within the store. Concrete rendering is currently a rather unique application to be used in Australian shopfitting, yet an appealing and cost-effective alternative to many other building materials found on most retail shop facades.

An LED strip light in the teal colour of the Platypus Shoes logo, runs along the underside length of the shopfront bulkhead. Whilst 3D facelit illuminated signage was fixed to the front. Adding to the harmonious appeal of the store, Black Mannex powder-coating was applied to all stripping channels and aluminium extrusions on the shopfront and throughout the interior fitout of the retail tenancy.

If you’re after Melbourne shopfitters who complete interior fitouts within the required tight timelines that shopfitting requires, yet still produce premium quality retail stores and pay particular attention to detail – then give us a call at AAFS Shopfitting.
