Peek & Cloppenburg Cologne

The six-storey “Weltstadthaus” operated by the fashion chain Peek&Cloppenburg was built to a design by Renzo Piano Building Workshops, mainly over the Nord-Süd-Fahrt road underpass in the Schildergasse pedestrian zone in Cologne city centre. The supporting structure of the organic-looking glass façade is a self-supporting shell made of timber, steel and cables.
