Historical Bank site for COS – Zürich

100-year-old historical bank facility and heritage building host the newly opened COS store in Zürich. Located in one of the most popular shopping streets: the Bahnhofstrasse. The brand remodeled the 800m2 space under the strict supervision of swiss monument Protection. But even when the effort was demanding, where else would it be better to settle in Zürich than in a former bank office?

Upon entrance, one finds the unique and restored terracotta columns and main hall for the former Swiss People´s Bank (SVB). Among other original features are the marble mosaic flooring, the metal-works and the striking vault in the basement, where the men`s collection is exhibited. Worth-a-visit!

COS is a clothing branch of the Swedish giant H&M. They have become famous for delivering high-end minimalistic design, using quality textiles on an affordable basis.

The newly remodeled outstanding architectural features create a bold contrast with the brand´s identity. Many locals are happy to have such beautiful spaces open to the public once again.
