Open-air shopping centre with 32.000 m2 of GLA and 10.000 m2 of leisure facilities which include, among other things, a multi-screen cinema complex, a bowling alley and a fitness centre. A dozen restaurants are also planned, and will be grouped on a terrace, the “Oasis”. The parking lot, an independent and completely open building, is linked to both commercial levels by electric stairs, moving walkways and elevators. It will have a capacity for more than 1.500 spaces.
The centre’s architecture is clearly contemporary, but respectful of the spirit of traditional local architecture. The materials used: the masonry, the plaster and some of the woodwork are examples of this influence. On the other hand, the metallic structures, the glass panels for protection against the rain, the state-of-the-art technical installations and the mechanical means of interior transportation bring modernity to the complex.
