GBA 16 000 sq.m.
GLA 8 500 sq.m.
3 floors
400,000 people per month


As the world changes quickly people also are changing along with. Today we buy not goods but a lifestyle. Product is no longer an aim itself and we often purchase something without paying attention on it. The shopping center is not a mix of stores, it’s a community and a place to meet each other. Shopping is not an obligation, but a part of life. The main feature of this shopping center is the galleries: on each floor the gallery ends with a translucent stained glass window. The interiors of these large zones are designed for recreation, meetings and services such as special equipment or ATMs.

Materials – Calm and Natural

Floor coverings have a common pattern of triangles of three gray shades on a white background. They increase their scale from the first to the third floor. This method solves the problem of intuitive navigation and self-identification of the guests in the shopping center.
Wood on the walls and furniture elements create a cozy and natural character of the shopping center.

Light and Colors

100 cars
280 seats


Light is an important element of the design. The galleries contain laconic pendant lights that follow the geometry of the pedestrian path through the gallery. The atrium is decorated with a light installation of «raining» lights. The slats of the food court have built-in linear lamps that are compilated with the whole lighting concept and create a special rhythm. Separated areas of the food court are highlighted by lamps with lampshades, ball lamps and suspended cylindrical lamps.
The only places for the color are the food court and the bathrooms. Contrasting to the calm interiors of the galleries, a slightly bright food court will attract visitors to relax and eat. The choosen colors are deep and muted.
