The world is changing so are the Shopping Destinations
With the ever-growing internet shopping and low footfalls at the shopping malls, there was a need for an architecture revolution that brings back the customers to shop at physical stores. But the question was how? Here how Libart answers this question; with its project of the retractable skylight at one of the biggest shopping malls in the capital city of Turkey.
Transforming retail environments in retail destinations to fulfill the needs of the shopping center owners and operators is the real answer for the above investigation. The era of traditional shopping malls is coming to end with the exciting possibilities of moving roofs which have inspired the architects. Looking at the shopping malls business with a different perspective where customers didn’t visit to buy some stuff but a place where they can socialize over lunch or coffee. Following a research study shows; that attractive features such as indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, bright sunlit indoor spaces naturally lead to well-designed, welcoming interiors that encourage customers to linger longer, and perhaps spend more.
Libart is already leading the moving architecture concept for commercial businesses for years. However, the Metro mall project is a must show for the other shopping mall owners who want to be back in business with new light and fresh air. This project has two gigantic frames of 92 meter, which gives the customers a feel of street shopping and protect them in bad weather.
