Bradford's former Co-operative department store, Sunwin House (1936) is an early influencial example of the open store principle. It was the first Co-op to install escalators and is notable for its unaltered appearance. Currently vacant, work is being carried out so it'll see light of day once more. #streamlinemoderne #britishstreamline #internationalmodernism #bradfordarchitecture #sunwinhouse #johnsonandcropper #artdecodepartmentstore

G E E K I N’ O U T ⚡️⚡️⚡️ ⚡️ Once again I cannot state how dumbfounded I was at the original pastel tones of the 1929 Bullocks Wilshire interior by #JockPeters. Pastel colors are often stereotyped with Mid Century Modernism and the “Memphis" 1980s Art Deco revival. Goes to show how diverse Art Deco style lends itself with every color palette. * •

1929 Interior of Bullocks Wiltshire by modernist Jock Peters which currently houses the library for The Southwestern Law School.

This is a very interesting building in Münster, Germany: It is located right in the heart of the city in a street that is called #Prinzipalmarkt. In this street you will find dozens of old crow-stepped gable houses from around 1500 and later. Unfortunately the majority of the buildings has been destroyed during World War 2 ... but luckily the city decided to reconstruct the whole street so nowadays the whole area looks genuine and old, but actually is an architectural postwar project.

What is so special about this building is the fact that it was modernized in 1925 as a department store for sports, games and products that pupils needed for school (I do not know if it was destroyed during World War 2 or not to be honest). Below the gable you will find two sculptures that depict a football/soccer and a tennis player while lots of smaller reliefs depict the topics mentioned before: playing, learning, and so on. The motto of the store was »Der Jugend das Beste« (»Only the best for the youth«) which can also be found as a typographic relief on the facade. The style of the modernized facade decoration can be seen as a fine example of the typically German expressionistic approach towards »art deco«. #interwarmodernism #artdeco #germanartdeco #artdecobuilding #artdecoarchitecture #artdecodepartmentstore #artdecosculpture #expressionism #brickexpressionism #backsteinexpressionismus #germanexpressionism #germanarchitecture #architectuur #germany #germanarchitecture #germandesign #germanart #allemagne #duitsland #deutschland #münster #muenster #münsterland #münsterliebe #münster4life #münstergram #gevel #ms4l #expressionist #1925

#ZigguratTuesday from the old Lao Jiefu Department store, a favorite in the '30s among local Shanghainese for its fabric, and prices -- Lao Jiefu was priced more competitively than the more luxurious "Big Four" department stores, which innovated the shopping experience. We'll hear more on the Big Four on Saturday 22 April, when Peter Hack talks about his new book, "The Art Deco Department Stores of Shanghai". shanghaiartdeco@gmail.com for more #ArtDeco #ShanghaiArtDeco #architecture #archstagram #ziggurat #shopping #departmentstore #ArtDecoDepartmentStore #instadeco #design #China #Shanghai

A building like no other in Berlin: The department store »Karstadt« by architect Philipp Schaefer, built from 1927 to 1929 at the Hermannplatz in the Neukölln district of Berlin.
The two towers were 56 m / 177 ft high, plus the two light columns which added 15 m / 50 ft to the overall height. The beautiful facade was made of light / pale »Muschelkalk« / shell limestone and housed 9 floors (2 underground). #interwarmodernism #interwarperiod #1920s #modernism #artdeco #artdecobuilding #artdecoarchitecture #artdecodepartmentstore #architecture #architektur #architectuur #departmentstore #berlin #germany #allemagne #duitsland #deutschland #karstadt #hermannplatz #neukölln #philippschaefer #heritage #monument #erfgoed #denkmal #baudenkmal #denkmalschutz #karstadtamhermannplatz #karstadthermannplatz #karstadtberlin
