Context / environment
After the success we had with the flagship store of Rive Gauche Saint Petersburg Galeria – The shop owner wanted to continue to equip all new shop openings with LED transparent displays for shop windows.
Street Co’s LED engineers and designers have been contacted again by Claudine Leroch, official architect for the biggest and finest new retail opening shop projects of the brand Rive gauche.
This project was part of a global renovation of Rive gauche Saint Petersburg This particular shop is located “Passage”, metro Gostiny Dvor, Nevsky prospect, 48, Saint Petersburg Russia
Nesvky prospect shop is located in a warehouse building with arched windows. So the transparent LED display had to fit the size of the windows to make sure the window would be completely covered with the LEDs.
The client has shared CAD drawings of the floor plan. The main objective was to use the windows shop to advertise products and promotions sold inside the shop.
Rive Gauche has insisted on adding a futuristic and digital touch to the front shop window. For the front windows the brief was simple and straightforward:
‘We needed to add a transparent LED displays to the shop windows to increase footfall’
This project was part of a global renovation of Rive gauche Saint Petersburg. This particular shop is located in “Passage”, metro Gostiny Dvor, Nevsky prospect, 48, Saint Petersburg Russia
The client Customer already knew where they wanted to install the transparent LED screen on the facade building to display advertising messages on the main street.
They also wanted to set themselves apart from what already exists on the market and especially to differentiate themselves from their main competitors which have shops on the same Nevsky prospect street.
After a few brainstorming meetings, Street co proposed a few options for dressing the shop windows space with digital transparent LED screens.
Solution : using a TRANSPARENT LED DISPLAY SCREEN
Customer satisfaction is one of our key objectives, Our last transparent LED display for the shop window used in the (Galeria Shopping mall in Saint Petersburg) was a real success and the product was appreciated by the shop managers.
We then decided to propose a similar product with custom sizes perfectly fitted to the window of Pyatigorsk shop.
The glass window is a key part of the shop as every single shopper will see the window while walking on Nevsky prospect avenue.
‘Passage’ is a shop on Nevsky prospect avenue and is located in a warehouse building with arched windows. So the transparent LED display had to fit the size of the windows to make sure the window would be complete covered with the LED displays.
To feature the main window shop right at the entrance of the shop, we have proposed to Rive gauche architects and Claudine Leroch the option of using transparent and in-glass LED screens with a Pitch of 5mm.
This project has a 4 years free warranty under Street Co’s warranty program.

The transparent LED window is powered by 2 electrical circuits which means that if one circuit goes out then the other will keep running. Each line holds a 4 section LED screen and has a maximum consumption of 4KW. This diagram is for reference to know how the power is being connected. All cables are labelled and directly connected to the control room.
