Shopping Nord Graz, Winner Iconic Awards 2016

Shopping Nord Graz, Winner Iconic Awards 2016

The largest shopping centre in the north of Graz has been converted and extended. It has also been technically refurbished by the architects to meet current standards.
A roof, which is almost 10 meters high, is built on reinforced concrete stilts, that seem randomly arranged to create a playful and light space. This effect is underlined by a glazed, assymetrical and circular roof opening, to allow for plenty of natural light; illuminating the seating areas on the curved and colourful paved promenade.
The closed structure of the building has been removed, new appealing retail areas have been created to ensure a pleasant shopping experience.
