Project Info

C Concept Design was commissioned to design a redevelopment plan for a single-level MEGA shopping centre in Ekaterinburg. The interior and exterior redesign consists of transforming a flagship shopping centre into a family-oriented complex offering the latest in retail for all ages. The complex houses an atrium that has a dedicated space for a food court, as well as an area for children. The entrances were designed to be visually clean, open, and inviting, with store logos behind a sheet of glass. The building has ground-level windows that look into the shops, as well as undercroft parking. Inside, the glare is reduced, inspired by designs found in nature and utilizing many different types of natural materials. Both the lights and the ceiling are well-integrated and slope upwards as you get closer to the atrium.
