New D.S. & Durga Fragrance House by k&co, Kavi Ahuja Moltz, and Pliskin Architecture Opens to Customers

Brooklyn-based fragrance house D.S. & Durga has opened a new outpost in Williamsburg. The 600-square-foot store was created by design lead k&co, an interior design firm, in collaboration with architectural designer Kavi Ahuja Moltz, also a co-founder of D.S. & Durga, and architect-of-record Pliskin Architecture. The store features custom layer-poured concrete walls and a cast-in-place concrete counter island. A niche display window reveals a static demonstration of how fragrances are developed at the firm’s Bushwick atelier. The focal point of the store is the ceramic chandelier designed by LA-based Entler Studio. Prior to the renovation, the existing space had an entry door and a small storefront window separated by a column. The opening was expanded by removing the column and adding a structural lintel. The new storefront features an accordion glass door that can be completely opened to the sidewalk on fair-weather days, appearing more like an extension of the streetscape to draw passerby into the store. The same team also designed the original Nolita store, which shares several of the company’s signature design elements.
