2012-10-13 Shopping City Süd
ATP Vienna was commissioned to refurbish Shopping City Süd.
Vösendorf - Wien – The newly opened parade ground of Austria's largest Shopping Center (176.000 m2), the Shopping City Süd (SCS) has become well-lit, green and organic. Originally built in 1975, the SCS is currently being refurbished according to plans by ATP architects engineers, Vienna. Modern architecture, free space, lounge areas and greenery will increase the attractiveness of the shopping center.
The comprehensive refurbishment of the SCS mall and of the building services of all shop areas of Shopping City Süd in Vösendorf bei Wien began in April 2012. At the same time more than 50% of shop areas will be rendered more attractive in line with new design concepts.
The two retail levels are being transformed in a series of phases: the first phase was completed architecturally at the beginning of October 2012 with the opening events of the adjacent “Hollister” and “Pull & Bear” shops. The updating of the entire external appearance of the SCS began at the start of November 2012 with the new façade.
The thermal refurbishment of the façade and renewal of the building services are being carried out in line with the latest ecological standards. There are – as in a city – open spaces, small parks and lounge areas. Elements such as water curtains and groups of trees create an organic spatial climate and agreeable shopping atmosphere.
The feedback from owners, tenants and customers is exceptionally positive. Above all, praise is being heaped on the opening up of the roof, the enlarging of the voids between the upper and lower retail areas and the resulting facility ease. The tunnel atmosphere of the old mall has been consigned to the history books. There are – as in a city – open spaces, small parks and lounge areas. Elements such as water curtains and groups of trees create an organic spatial climate and agreeable shopping atmosphere. The refurbishment is being rated as very successful.
