Façade farce

The arrival of a prestigious global brand on North Terrace has caused justifiable excitement, but the reality of the Tiffany & Co shopfront might not quite live up to expectations.

  • Cartoon: Ross Bateup

The reveal of the Tiffany & Co shopfront in the last fortnight was highly anticipated, but the integration of the sparkling white façade with the surrounding North Terrace environment leaves a little something to be desired. 

While the products that await inside are no doubt of the highest quality and beautifully designed, our cartoonist Ross Bateup wonders if the shopfront itself might have benefitted from some sensitivity to its surroundings.
