the k:fem department store by wingårdh architecture is located in the vällingby development, just outside of stockholm. the store was conceived as a new beacon for the community serving to inject new life into the area. the exterior is covered in a milky glass which gets increasingly see through toward the top, merging into the red overhang above. the list of stores inside are displayed on the overhang, all in white on red. a pedestrian street cuts-through the department store, dividing it from the adjoining solo retailer. inside the store, the semitransparent theme continues. the most unique features is the light filled central core which is open to the sky.
