CORIO (nowadays KLEPIERRE)
In simple terms, the client invited us to convert the parking area into a dynamo of new experiences.
The Gran Turia Project is a significant example of how leisure can change the perception of a mall and reinforce links with the community. A well-defined project such as our Gran Turia proposal, means an integral revision of how we understand the experience and emotional connection of the visiting public.
In ¨street life ¨ we found our inspiration .The spirit of the Mediterranean was brought to the urban centre as a social hub for the community of Xirivella.
To this end we developed a new concept of a multi-functional space, reminiscent of a Spanish square. An open area, where interesting and varied things take place. Here, the development of design and landscaping was crucial in strengthening the redesigning of the surroundings.
From this powerful thought .the backbone of the whole zone was conceived – an open amphitheatre circled by playgrounds, sports and rest zones, restaurants along with a diverse offer of food and beverage.
