A place for people

With a total sales floor area of 46’000m² for around 160 shops, restaurants and bars, the Mall of Switzerland is the largest shopping experience center in Central Switzerland, and embodies Swiss values, both inside and out.

Bright and inviting design

The individual structures each fulfil their own functions and express a different architectural idiom. The façades of the two public buildings – the mall and the leisure center – can be backlit as well as used for media projections. The first-floor areas are glazed and open out onto the square: the use of different materials creates a visual distinction between the first floor and the upper floors, and also establishes an appropriate sense of scale. The leisure center with its cinema complex is a monolithic structure that contrasts with the gentle and flowing façade of the mall.
