Chapman Taylor win a new project competition in Germany

We are excited to announce that last Monday our Düsseldorf office won a competition for a new 5-storey fashion store directly adjacent to the main railway station in the city of Wuppertal, Northern Germany.

The scheme is designed with an amorphous shape and slanting external walls clad with brown-golden perforated metal panels. This design reflects the rich history of Wuppertal, a city which was an important major centre in the German textile industry during the 19th century.

The client for the project is the Irish developer, Signature Capital, the same company for whom Chapman Taylor are currently redeveloping the famous Neumarkt Galerie shopping mall in the city of Cologne.

Congratulations to all in our German office!
