Wooden flooring and bright-colored accents contrast against the rusty columns of the structure, an intended U-boat production site that halted construction in 1944. A brick wall on one side of the building's interior adds hip appeal that complements the outlet store's colorful inventory.&nbsp; On the other hand, the structure's original components&mdash;in addition to its enormous size&mdash;are hard to ignore, almost to the point where it becomes the main showpiece.</p> <p> What do you think of B+W's redesign?
