#Department store #Weißenfels #1929
The eye-catching building, which was provided with a round corner, stands on the central market square. What is special about the building are the dominant window areas. The boundaries between the floors are visible on the exterior building on the narrow, horizontal, plastered parapets. The vertical staircase on the right-hand side opposes the building's main horizontal course.
The ground floor zone is and was designed as a shop window and entrance zone. The sales rooms reach until the third floor. The fourth floor is slightly set back and houses the offices.
Emil Joske was a successful Jewish merchant who had built this department store from 1929 to 1930. Inside it was completely rebuilt after 1990 to meet the needs of today's users.
