The new Flagship Store for s. Oliver appears respectful, modern and self-confident in its prominent inner-city location. The building integrates harmoniously into the Würzburg cityscape. The openness and transparency of the building permit an easy, flowing relationship between indoor and outdoor environments. The selected site had formed one unit since 1910 with the directly neighbouring building with the same eaves and symmetrical corner emphasis.
The connection to the neighbouring building, the well-known local Café Michel am Oberen Markt, is important. In a similar manner to the corner emphasis on the Café Michel, a vertical monitor window is set facing the city at the distinctive corner of the development on the line of sight along the Schönbornstraße to the cathedral. The Flagship Store s.Oliver communicates from a distance with the city. The facade gives little hint of the functional interior concept.
The building divides into 3 upper business and 2 office storeys. As can also be seen on the typical Würzburg town houses, the plinth zone is accentuated in height and transparently open. It presents as a two-story display window. The facade of the 2nd and 3rd storeys is designed as a perforated facade.
