The prestigious Oberpollinger department store, a spectacular property on Neuhauser Strasse in central Munich, has a history stretching back over a century. Fully renovated in 2008. The property features retail space extending from the basement to the fourth floor, and a restaurant with rooftop terrace on the fifth floor. Rents in this prime, high-footfall location are the highest in Germany.

In October 2016 »The Storey«, Oberpollinger’s Concept Store, opened its doors. »The Storey« is an integral part of Oberpollinger’s facelift. The concept store is not just a shopping location, but more a space for art – thanks to the high-profile design from architectural duo Gonzalez Haase. The architects’ project underlines the way in which the gap between fashion and art is closing. Far removed from familiar designs, »The Storey« is marked by the playful use of contrasts, differences and inconsistencies in its formal language, colour scheme and choice of materials.
