The 1000 sqm space hosts Moda Bagno and Interni’s entire range of designer products. This includes contemporary classic furniture, bathrooms and kitchens.
The building is a large 12mH x 14mW x 16mD box. The street facade is clad with expanded metal and interspersed with openings to allow views into and out of the building. The cedar framework celebrates the openings and its intensified perspective form frames and gives direction to the views.
As the cars drive by the exaggerated perspective frames attract and intrigue. Their accentuated perspective allows for views from a wider range of angles, offering passersby more time to look inside whilst accelerating in their cars.
In one of the Bulthaup kitchens the mural artist Joanna Burtenshaw has drawn a scene from a Greek fish market.
