Made to fit, yet Independent

Despite it’s size, the Staufen-Galerie shopping center is intended to harmoniously blend in with the existing architecture of downtown Göppingen. For this purpose, BFA has developed a façade made of light-colored precast concrete parts, where material, color and scaled distributions take on the proportions of the surrounding buildings. The depth and transparency of the individual building sections reflect the surrounding street spaces. As the Staufen-Galerie is backless, all the facades open up towards the heavily frequented city center and are thus embedded in the face of the city as a mirror image.
