This is a project by Gonzalez / Haase / AAS and it is located at Potsdamer Straße, Berlin, Germany. Project's program: Retail store. There are sixteen images for Andreas Murkudis Store.
A re-interpretation of the department store.
As department stores use different space identities to recognize different brands or good-types, the AAS proposition would use different topological spaces like the one we can find in a city or in a village.
The former printer space of the Tagesspiegel is composed in two large halls that we can see as an exhibition space but also as an urban site.
The two halls have been cleared-out in the way all architectonic elements remain the only substance of the spaces.
The light is an important element and is just not lighting the goods but the space. The result is a magnified space that also loses all heaviness.
A few objects were carefully placed to articulate views on the goods. These objects work only on a scale that you will not imagine movable. The used material is fibreboard white painted, and is usually linked to building construction.
