The Fashion Outlet in Wigoltingen mediates between the urban industrial buildings of a former mill and the adjacent countryside. A horizontally structured building complements the older, vertical industrial buildings. The soft forms of the landscape are mirrored in the volume of the building. The blending of the architectural body with the countryside integrates the large volumes naturally into their surroundings and creates an important added value. The building and the facades are placed in the natural space in a way that avoids all hierarchy of directions. The sculptural forms of the three parts of the building highlight the radiation of the volume to all sides.

Each of the three buildings represents an independent body, with a clear architectural and urban position to the surroundings, both on its own and in combination with the other volumes. Thanks to the folding of the closed parts of the external surface, the facades appears as a textile curtain. The folding is interceded by the floor-to-ceiling windows, adding a playful rhythm to the facade.

The stages of the construction process for the three buildings can function separately from the aspect of urban planning and architecture.
