About

The project scheme is based on a voyage of discovery. As a natural extension to the city centre, to which it is connected by a modern tramway, the innovative development is dedicated to the world of shopping and leisure. The lower level with its elliptic malls takes its inspiration from the Odyssey of Ulysses and features the Ithaca, Calypso and Sun plazas as well as the Islands of Cyclops and Circe. The upper level represents the future – taking its theme from the Milky Way and the Constellations. The modern design of this part of the centre reflects both the conquest of space and modern technology with materials such as stainless steel, mirror and aluminium while hi-tech lighting sculpts the spaces depending on the time of day.
