Department store Helmich

A department store – a materialized gesture of an abstract spirit. A new building crystallizes unexpectedly at a place close to the town’s historical centre where the tissue of the former urban structure has been falling into pieces. Steel. Glass. The longitudinal mass of the only crucial facade wrapped in glass panes with an original anchoring detail becomes exposed and more dynamic with each step. With respect to the context of the place, this is a sophisticated intervention in terms of a strategy to rehabilitate damaged urban relations.
