MPREIS WII Supermarket

Wattens, Austria

The second supermarket MPreis de Wattens is located in the city centre. It’s a multifuncional box with a bank, a clothes shop, a coffee and a police station. The carparks are situated under the supermarket and received natural light from planted patios. This elevated situation gives to the building an impression of lightness. the cristal façades are partially doubled with metal mesh which filters light and give points of view on the surroundings nature
