food in comfort
pleasant atmosphere

After local visits and internal workshops, we can define preliminary list of potential topics for discussion:

  1. Different customers groups are mixed in close or same zones. 2. Different customer’s group’s journey should be controlled in its experience. 3. Today client’s journey contains many pain points. It is easy to get lost. Kids shops clients mixed with cheap food offering customers. Servicing for mother and child, kids attractions, comfortable rest zones are missed. What is our special offer? The offer is to spend the whole day here: shopping, entertainment, food in comfort, pleasant atmose.

Main idea of the project is to use three atriums as communication cores. These cores connect all the floors and distribute a proper customers flow. 1st atrium to be extended with new location of escalators group and supplement the new passenger lifts. 2nd atrium to be connected with 1st floor by creating new opening. New set of escalators group to be used. 3rd atrium to be created.

It`s well known, that Afimall was built more recently. Within a decade, the renovation is needed. How come?

Alena Panfilova-Korsakova
leading architect

The important thing about this mall is unique location (in the center of business quarter «Moscow city»). Obviously interior should be modern and comfort for Moscow city workers and citizens. In the project we bring better quality for spaces that became outdated as food court, toilets etc.

Alexandra Razina
leading architect

What is the new, you suggested to bring in the design and what is you`ve decided not to change?

Alena Panfilova-Korsakova
leading architect

At first we made full analysis and recognized what should we do to make it works better. There were a lot of ideas – from constructive to decorative changes. In general there are great skylights and nice spaces that will work much better with good interior light, new furniture and brand new decorative unique elements.

Alexandra Razina

What is the scale of construction and how it is being implemented now - while the Afimall actually functioning?
