A comprehensive project with demands that motivated HEIKAUS to develop many new ideas. The design team was able to decisively influence the new façade design. The new exterior plaster, window colour, positioning and design as well as placement of the outdoor advertisements were ordered. A perfect design merger of interior and exterior design resulted – including architecture, structural engineering and interior design – as is reflected in the overall appearance of the new specialist store.
Inside, the HEIKAUS team used the total available area of 260 m² in order to give each specialist and competence area its very own platform. Wood-design flooring was used to connect both areas and create a tangible unity.
The areas are recognisably divided for customers with a tasteful colour [routing] system. The technical optician’s area is coloured in magenta, the hearing acoustics in teal – taken from the colours of the Müller logo. Teal and magenta recessed LED strips break up the walls of the examination areas in the rear area of the store while also offering optimal orientation for customers. Thus, the left part of the hallway in magenta holds the optician’s examination area (optometrics) while the right part, including a generous counter, belongs to acoustics.
The two areas were deliberately designed very differently in colour as well as in material.
The acoustics area in the rear of the store received a clear and technical design. High-pile carpeting and wall coverings with a teal felt fabric add a warm atmosphere while ensuring optimal room acoustics.
