The Lighthouse shop is furnished with walnut tables and cabinets that display an assortment of garments and accessories.

Plants and flowers fill a courtyard-like room behind glazing at the centre of the store, which is naturally lit from a large skylight overhead.

The translucent white curtains conceal a fitting room at the rear of the shop, where lampshades resemble upturned woven baskets.

Another shop we've featured recently also has exposed brick interiors - see our earlier story about a skincare store in Tokyo.

Here's some extra text from Reich und Wamser:


Reich and Wamser developed the first lighthouse store for Esprit along the lines 'back to the origins'.

The new store, located on lively Ehrenstrasse in Cologne leads the customer back to the time when the label was founded in California.

Authentic brick walls, genuine wood, a wintergarden with big skylights and flowers from the sunshine state create an honest ambiance.

Appropriately to the current marketing campaign with Gisele Bündchen, a warm and laid back atmosphere pervades every detail of the store.
