The Andreas Murkudis Store, in a hidden Berliner courtyard, represents to a certain degree a new approach in how to design a commercial space. In this fashion and design store, the visitor meets an environment that is functional, as well as dedicated to a formal process, making the end product – the store – more or less transcend the borders between architecture, scenography and visual art. The furniture appears as minimalist objects against a backdrop of neutral white, as if we were in a gallery space and not clothes shop. These aspects are further stressed by the arrangement of light, as well as other logistic elements. No electrical or technical elements can be seen. Nothing interrupts the view of the visitor.
