Die Herausforderung: local feel for a global player
Well-known brands are at home all over the world, the PEP retail centre being another expression of the increasing globalisation of consumption. So it was all the more important to us to create a locale with its own identity, all the time linking Far Eastern culture and modern cosmopolitanism.

Kerstin Heyroth: 'In a world where cultural identity is increasingly being lost, we want to arrest people visually with our architecture and create space that unites tradition and modernity.'
 
The design: a Far Eastern aesthetic within a European context
Textiles and ornamentation are some of the standard elements of design in Asiatic architecture and lifestyle. Fabric screens and exquisite wall hangings with floral decoration have both been used for centuries. We developed the motif of a stylised orchid based on this tradition. We use it in an eye-catching way to decorate the curved, bordeaux red bar wall, which is integral to the front façade, leading the visitor in.

The orchids glow even from a distance and beckon guests to come and explore Asian cuisine under a tented membrane. Much in the way of Far Eastern architecture, the cocos Munich also makes playful reference to pure form. The gently curved wall and the delicate decor contrast with the stark white of the furniture.

Elegant light fittings, reminiscent of drops of water, create a bridging element between the airy tented membrane and the earthy colours of the flooring.
