Cosmopolitan Architecture

Cosmopolitan Architecture

Since the construction of the store in Frankfurt am Main in 1988, if not before, P&C has used cosmopolitan architecture for its major stores. Exterior and interior communicate cosmopolitan refinement and generous style. Following the spacious tradition of the great department store palaces in London, Paris and New York, aesthetics of the 21st century lead the vision. We plan store buildings which fit harmoniously into the cityscape and which are architectural highlights. Sales rooms flooded with natural light, clear lines and natural materials will create a spacious ambience for high-quality fashion.


Good Architecture Communicates
Peek&Cloppenburg considers the new “flagship stores” as an investment in the company. After all, outstanding architecture is a medium of communication. It documents the corporate philosophy in a very visible way and depicts our own demands of distinction and taste.


What will the store of the future look like?
Will the stores of tomorrow become more than just places to buy things? Could they also become captivating fields of experience, urban spots or even great sights? What is the objective? To sell as many goods as possible from as small an area as possible? Or to create new, open, attractive shopping environments that encourage people to stay and be inspired?


A Challenge for Star Architects
Peek & Cloppenburg invited internationally renowned architects to find the answers. Many star architects were convinced by that challenge. Finally, RKW (Rhode, Kellermann, Wawrowsky) were put in charge of the store in Frankfurt am Main; Moore, Ruble, Yudell of the store in Leipzig; Prof. Gottfried Böhm of the store in Berlin; Richard Meier of the store in Düsseldorf; Prof. Josef P. Kleihues of the store in Stuttgart, and Renzo Piano of the new store in Cologne.
