The Galleria Department Store project had two main goals. The first was a new fašade that projects a lively, ever-changing surface. In total 4330 glass discs are mounted on the existing concrete skin of the building. The glass discs include special dichroic foil generating a mother-of-pearl effect during the day. During the night, each glass disc is lit by LED lights which can be programmed to create a multitude of effects. The second goal was the renovation of the interior into a luxurious integrated design. Inspired by the catwalk the customer finds himself immersed in the world of fashion while moving through the generous corridors. The interior design focuses on the elimination of superfluous details and introduces new integrated Big Details.
