The design is an elegant, steel and glass, five-storey ‘U’ shaped box. Subverting the earliest mall concepts, which were inward looking entities, a glazed atrium faces the highway exposing the inner activity of the shopping centre to the gaze of passers by. The projecting box with a terrace accommodating cafes and restaurants overlooks the cityscape and the E-5 streets.

As an alternative to frequency of shopping centers and existing characteristics of trade areas in the region, E-5 is a unique and compact festive market place. The new image is not only offering the goods to buy but also it becomes a new gathering zone for social motives, such as the ice-rink. The project is a good example of the qualities inspired by the people of all standards, especially families, and responsive to local needs, in social terms as well. As to the interior of the mall, the landscaped public space is surrounded by cafes and restaurants and is designed to attract families and to extend the appeal of a shopping trip.

    I liked this shopping center design, it has modern, simple, and elegant design with a nice shading device externally, and a quite complex design internally which makes it a great place.

Located in the city’s up and coming Southwest neighbourhood this 300 m2 detached house hides a rich spatial complexity behind its tough working class façade. Turning to the neighbourhood’s post-war veteran’s home as its formal point of departure, the architects set out to make a house that simultaneously fits in and stands out from its […]
