Mall of Switzerland, with its 46,000 m2 area and 150 shops, will be one of the largest shopping centers in Switzerland. A vector of growth and ongoing development in the Lucerne region, it will give a nice image of the evolutionary trade both domestically and abroad. FREO Switzerland AG in partnership with contractor Halter AG has developed with Architects Burkhardt & Partner (interior design/branding) and a storybook by Schwitzke & Partner, the project in accordance with economic, ecological and cultural and social criteria, which will bring a new quality of life in the municipality of Ebikon, 10 mn away from the city of Lucerne.
A voyage in the world of shopping and leisure
The Mall of Switzerland will include an avant-garde neighborhood replicating the American-inspired lifestyle and entertainment universe. However, priority will be given to European culture that will be reflected in the architecture, the nature and sustainability, but with the functionality of a high end international mall.
Marvel, dream and dive into a new shopping atmosphere, that, in addition to meeting the needs, will also awakens all the senses. Among the international brands, the best known Swiss quality brands will be represented as well as a wide selection of stores dedicated to young designers. Trend offers of Wellness, Fitness, dining and shopping, as well as cultural events addressing all age groups will be part of a concept of central square: EbiSquare.
EbiSquare, place of culture
Inside the Mall of Switzerland, the EbiSquare area, an outdoor space, will host cultural events such as fashion shows, exhibitions or ephemeral art galleries and pop-ups, surrounded by a recreation center, a multiplex cinema, a hotel and housing buildings.
Thanks to the Mall of Switzerland, Ebikon and the surrounding towns will benefit not only of the extension of public transport service, but also a considerable upgrading of the quality of their environment.
Modern and adapted architecture
Mall of Switzerland has the distinctive feature of boasting diversified volumes with avant-garde architecture. The facades of the building for commercial and leisure open to the public show its duality. The entirely glassed ground floor will open onto the central square of EbiSquare. The leisure center with a cinema complex, present themselves as a monolithic structure that will oppose the translucent envelope, flexible and fluid of the commercial center. Like a “flying saucer”, the upper floors will ooverhang the ground floor, which will give all an aesthetic scale ratio.
The use of warm, natural materials such as wood, combined with a futuristic design, will give visitors a sense of well-being.
Mall of Switzerland is scheduled to open its doors in autum 2017.
