Facts

Location Client Completion
Wroclaw, Poland Inter Ikea Centre Polska (IICP) 2015

Project details

The extension comprises international and domestic fashion retailers, substantial restaurant and cafes, a cinema and other entertainment venues. The overall scheme consists of a second ‘race track’ retail circuit, connected to the existing hypermarket and shopping centre at the east of the new extension, and it provides a new main entrance and an enhanced retail environment to the existing hypermarket and retail offers. The existing centre has been partially over clad in a similar architectural language to unify the old and the new.

The concept was driven by both local influences and the strong design heritage of the IKEA brand. The facades are an abstraction of the rock formations and recreational climbing routes of Mount Sleza which is visible from the shopping centre. Much of the inspiration for the concepts of the internal environment is a response to the local context of the River Odra and the multitude of bridges in Wroclaw.
