Located on the main street of town, the newly-opened Dames Dietz Deli (what a great name!) feature three stacked layers. The sloping planes are designed to draw in passersby and to promote the influx of as much natural light [1] as possible. The upper levels are used for storage and the kitchen while the bottom level accommodates the guests.

Clad in brown ceramic tiles, the deli was constructed out of Nur-Holz [2], which is a highly sustainable material sourced in local European forests. “It is the first commercial project completed with this Cradle2Cradle structural framework [3] method,” according to the designers, who add that “this unique, sustainable system integrates the structure, the services, the internal finishes as well as the insulating properties.” A beautiful new addition to the center of town, the 100 sqm deli opened its doors in May this year.
