Super Stylish Super Markets
Austrian super market chain Mpreis has been practicing discerning tastes not only in food but in architecture for the last 20+ years. The family owned super market brand currently has 156 light filled pavilions mostly built out of gourmet materials such as steel, perforated glass, poured concrete and raw birch timber. Yet every location bears a striking difference from the other as each Mpreis store employs a different architect with noteworthy names like Dominique Perrault and Peter Lorenz. Too bad most of these stores are located within mountainous alps and elite ski villages, I would love to buy some groceries in one. Photo from T Magazine.
