Shaped like a slightly irregular ellipse, this futuristic shopping center features an exterior layout that reflects the adjacent landscape into the form of a true oceanic atoll which hosts within its over 250,000 square meters' area more than 60 one-brand stores arranged in a dynamic layout, manifold restaurants and bars, children playgrounds and attractions, inside and outside car parks and ground-breaking customer services. Standing about 8 to 12 meters apart from the main building, the elliptical outside structure of the atoll provides a reserved area behind the shops suitable for good deliveries that offers at the same time a clear passage for security services.
Trademark of L’Atoll, this exterior ring is covered by a pearl white aluminum mesh, which creates a recurring honeycomb decorative pattern. While up to a height of 3m, a thick perforation in the mesh hides the lower part of the inside structure to prying eyes, from a height of 3 to 12m, a larger diamond-shaped cobweb defines the outer appearance of the whole structure with a distinctive lay-out. This honeycomb design is gorgeously highlighted by a back-lighting system that further enhances, through a game of color and shadows, the outside frame of the atoll.
