MPREIS WI Supermarket

Wattens, Austria

A piece of nature fits in the supermarket, as this one integrates the landscape. Its fourth façade provides direct natural light. The others façades are made of translucent glass from outside to inside and completely transparent one from inside to outside. During the last ten years, this familial company asked to several architects to draw its supermarkets.
