MPREIS Supermarket

Zirl, Austria

The supermarket, built on the bank of the Inn in Zirl becomes a natural part of the riverbank promenade, due to its architectural concept and the material choices. With an alternance of glass and steel panels, of transparency and reflection on the East facade, the border between inside and outside disappear.
