00046 chameleon — tesco brno

< 1 / 3 >

Tesco department store is located on an attractive site on the border of the old and new Brno centre, between the main railway station and Vaňkovka Gallery. The adjacent open public space is an important traffic hub that provides access to the newly-emerging South Centre. The functionally as well as esthetically outdated 1980’s architecture of the department store has been transformed into a modern multistory shopping gallery with shops, restaurants, cafés, a cinema, a sports club, a social welfare centre as well as a conference centre. The existing volume is completed with a generous inner atrium and the whole construction is unified by a dynamic facade changing into an unusual light structure at night.
