Over here at 7x7, we're definitely stoked for the Metreon's massive, $30 million makeover, complete with the city's first Target (score!). But it means more to us than just having a pretty new place to see IMAX 3D movies and buy cheap, cute clothes. It means a pretty new place to buy books, at the brand-spanking new Chronicle Books outpost!
For its third retail store in the city of San Francisco, Chronicle Books pulled out all the stops. Designed by the renowned architects at Aidlin Darling Design (who gained a coveted James Beard restaurant design award for Bar Agricole), the space features displays and signage inspired by Chronicle's own books and aesthetic, a dedicated space for author events, and an innovative video panel displaying Chronicle's e-book and app offerings.
