PUMA has opened its first sustainable store in Bangalore, India, and it boasts a number of revolutionary design elements. The solar-powered store was locally developed, and instead of air-conditioning, uses the Earth to keep cool- a highly insulated shell and an underground heat sink system keeps the temperature constant throughout the year.

PUMA Opens Its First Self-Sufficient Sustainable Store

Almost 90% of the store has access to natural daylight, which minimizes the use of artificial lighting. Where lighting is needed, super-efficient LED lights are used. The designers made use of lots of recycled and upcycled materials to further reduce the building’s impact, including recycled steel for its front facade. The store also features low VOC paint and posters made of jute.
