7737 sqm GLA
The retail centre of 7737m2 GLA is located in Namibe, a coastal desert city founded in 1840 in the southwest of Angola. Because it has a cool, dry climate and only desert vegetation, it was important to develop the building around established Acacia trees on the site. The most prominent tree was located in the middle of the site which became the genius loci and key generator for place making. The building has a locally manufactured steel frame structure, which enabled us to manufacture all the key components off site and to erect the building in a very short period of time.
