Located in the center of St. Gallen’s financial hub of Bleicheli, in Switzerland, is an outdoor space that looks more like the interior of a comfortable living room. The entire outdoor space is carpeted in red that appears to have swept in like the tide, spilling between the buildings and round the corner, covering everything in its path. The red carpet flows over the sidewalk and into the fountain, over seating elements, and even a parked Porsche. This area is called Stadtlounge. “Stadt” means “public” in German, so Stadtlounge simply means: a public lounge.

Back in the 19th Century, when St. Gallen was famous for its embroidery production, the Bleicheli quarter fell just outside the city's medieval old town and was home to many textile factories. Today, it’s the financial district of St. Gallen with modern banks and insurance buildings.
