Closed Front

Often used for shops where privacy and exclusiveness were needed or desirable, such as high-end boutiques or jewelry stores. Characteristics include:

  • Flat billboard-like front, which obscures view of interior spaces
  • Partitions, curtains, and windowless doors to limit view of interior space
  • Closed front can be at building line or recessed from the building line
  • Closed front can be punctuated with small display windows or cases
