Store of the year

Paulina Szmydke,

Kastner & Öhler has scooped an international ARE Design Award in Las Vegas and has been named department store of the year for 2011. The prize was awarded to K&Ö after the mall, which is one of the oldest in Austria, went through a complete makeover which doubled its sales area to 215,000 square feet and expanded its selection of brands to more than 500. Only the facade remains the same; inside everything is new. The architects faced a considerable task as the complex’s ground plans stemmed from six different centuries. Don’t miss the roof terrace, which offers one of the best views over Graz’s historical city centre.

Kastner & Öhler, Sackstrasse 7-13, 8021 Graz, +43 (0)316 8700
