Oberpollinger Munich – Timeless and innovative design

John Pawson’s Masterplan concept intends to open the ground floor luxury boulevard toward the shopping street, to give the overlapping sales areas a new look and moreover, to integrate a concept store for urban wear on the basement level. The fourth floor “Home & Living” sales area was also redesigned by John Pawson Architects.

As a creative partner for “The Storey” on the basement floor, the architectural studio Gonzalez Haase AAS has created an urban atmosphere with a stylish hand. The rough, partly open ceiling design is characteristic. A functional grid of 60cm long lighting track segments consistently spans across the entire retail space, conveying an industrial look. Here, fixtures for general and accent lighting can be accommodated to create a balanced mix of horizontal and vertical illuminance intensities. Different lighting colour temperatures were intentionally chosen to aid in thematically zoning and organize the space.
