Developing real values.


Behind the striking historical façade, which was supplemented with modern advertising pylons, an incomparable shopping world came to life. The façade of the shopping center „LOKwerk“, scheduled as an ancient monument and reflecting the charm of the 19th century from outside, impresses with a modern and exclusive mall from the inside. Modern and traditional architectural elements blend together in a harmonious way.
A unique shopping experience is created with the rolling alignment of the
mall and shop fronts, the high double-windows, a skylight, the exclusive
flagstones, the approx. 100 m2 big palm garden and the modern chandeliers.
A thorough market study allowed for the development of a user mix perfectly
adapted to the urban catchment. The new shopping center „LOKwerk“
constitutes a balanced combination of shops and services for the weekly family needs.
