SCHUNCK is housed in the former Schunck department store in the centre of Heerlen designed by architect Fritz Peutz (a contemporary of Mies van der Rohe) in 1935. The building is known locally as the Glaspaleis (or Glass Palace) due to the abundance of glass used on its exterior. The building has been named one of the 1000 most important buildings of the 20th century by the Union of International Architects.

The current SCHUNCK building, named after the entrepreneur who had the Glaspaleis built, is now an arts centre offering cultural and educational activities to the citizens of Heerlen.
