Shop "Au Bon Marché" in Esch-sur-Alzette
Project of the Mulhern & Steil era.
The original "Au Bon Marché" shop probably had the ugliest awning in the entire rue de l'Alzette.
The owner asked us to set up a shop on two lower levels, as well as transform the apartments on the upper floors. It was an opportunity to lighten up the facade by opening up the first floor and replacing the existing awning with a lighter structure in steel and glass.
The addition of an elevator glued to the existing staircase was able to improve the access to the upper floors, and a well of natural light at the back of the store encourages access to the 1st floor commercial facilities.
We transformed the apartments, which had not been updated since the construction of the building, with complete respect of the original style.
The "Bon Marché" shop has disappeared in recent years, and our façade has been replaced with the "Corporate Image" of the multinational corporation that has succeeded it.
