330 metres long, this two-storey shopping mall is provided with plenty of natural daylight thanks to several elliptic glass structures with a total surface of 2,900 m² along the length of its gallery. This results in lower power requirements for electric lighting, which, in turn, considerably reduces CO2 emissions into the environment.
