DEPARTMENT STORE

The site of this project is the heart of a former village which since the war rapidly grew into a medium-sized city. The building is surrounded by big oak trees and an old, beautiful zoo. Ground floor façades are completely glass, suggesting public space to continue in the department store which can be found here. Above the ground floor, hovering between the tree-tops is an organically shaped volume, clad with thatch, containing 34 luxury dwellings.
