1st Prize SES Spar European Shopping Centers Ried i. I., Austria
The design for a downtown shopping center for SES in Ried respects both the location and its surroundings. The ATP-concept for future shopping convinced the jury.
The integration of the building complex into the densely built district close to the town center required that the design – from the viewpoint of sustainable building – paid close attention to socio-cultural aspects as well as to the issues of energy and transport.
The new shopping center uses the fine structure of streets, squares and individual buildings to draw the town center into the building. The volume of the shopping center is structured in such a way that it is integrated into the town. The materials and sense of space draw the urban atmosphere deep into the building. Both of these are contemporary aspects of sustainability for a modern shopping center; in addition to this the center pays special attention to transport. The transport concept and the design of delivery, parking and related transport areas make it possible to create a two-part shopping center – suitable for large shopping expeditions with car and shopping trolley on the one hand and an urban stroll from the town center encountering revitalized pavements, bicycles and a typical small-town shopping atmosphere on the other.
The design maximizes the use of local materials to keep the C02 footprint as low as possible and optimize the building in energy terms.
