This retail park and shopping centre is located in Coresi, a new extension to the city of Braşov.
One of the aims of the design was a fluid connection between the open-air retail park and the indoor shopping centre, with the hypermarket connecting the two.
The retail park is organized around an open-air ground-level car park which also serves the hypermarket and the indoor retail area.
The shopping centre has one of its main facades on Strada 13 Decembrie, looking at the city, and the other towards the pedestrian route which organises the development of Coresi and the connection with the city centre. It is on the latter, which is the focus point of the whole project, where the leisure activities are located including restaurants, bars, cinemas, a bowling arcade and a casino.
Special emphasis was put on the use of natural light in the interior of the shopping centre through the use of Teflon, a new material which, with its light structure and wide spans, allowed us to create an indoor street protected from the elements.
