Korman Fine Jewelry to Build Sparkling New Store Designed by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture
Austin's leading independent jeweler to break ground on a vibrant new retail location in Pemberton Heights
Austin-born and family-owned, Korman Fine Jewelry will be breaking ground on January 25 to begin construction on their dazzling new retail location in Pemberton Heights. Working with favored local architecture and design firm, Michael Hsu Office of Architecture (MHOA), Korman will be transforming an abandoned structure, formerly occupied by University Cyclery, overlooking Shoal Creek at 2901 N. Lamar Blvd.
Because this location has an elevated position, along with large oak trees, customers can enjoy the tranquil setting with panoramic views of the outdoors, plus warm and inviting spaces indoors, including a large showroom, multiple hospitality lounges, a bridal salon, and a VIP reception room.
“We’re excited to be a part of creating what will soon be an incredibly unique, luxurious and beautiful destination jewelry store for Austin. Larry and Kat asked for a complete transformation of the building and site, and to design a place that will make their clients feel like they’ve stepped into a one-of-a-kind store that feels like their personal jeweler’s home,” said Michael Hsu, FAIA, IIDA, principal of Michael Hsu Office of Architecture.
The 11,000-square-foot space will feature a design that draws inspiration from nature. Customers can appreciate plenty of natural light from strategically placed skylights to complement the craftsmanship of the pieces on display.
Guests will be able to shop collections from world-renowned designers, such as Single Stone, FOPE, Messika, Jade Trau, Walters Faith and Viltier. The showroom will also include Swiss timepieces from Rolex, Tudor, Blancpain and more.
An opening date has not yet been announced, but once complete, Korman will be moving into this new location and closing the Burnet Road location. For more information, please follow @kormanfinejewelry.
