P & C Department Store | Renzo Piano Building Workshop Architects

Set on central Cologne’s Schildergasse, the city’s shopping area, this new Peek & Cloppenburg flagship store is a mix of glass, steel, stone and wood: classic materials to dress a modern building, entirely dedicated to fashion. Massive, but sculpted to be curvacious, this five-storey building covers an area of 23,000 sq m, of which 15,000 sq m are open to public.
