Inside an area of 5000 m², GPA’s project schedules a commercial space of 1500 m², a public square, and an underground parking for 52 cars.

The building is a hi-tech retail centre, with an internal pedestrian route, lighted from above, passing through the building and crossing a central hall.

The structure is clearly shown with its mixture of technologies: reinforced concrete columns, and wooden beams longer than 20 m. The extension of the pedestrian route outside the building creates a visual connection with the river’s bank.
