PROMONTORIO ARQUITECTOS - DOLCE VITA MALL

Promontorio Arquitectos - Dolce Vita Mall Miraflores, Oeiras / Lisbon, Portugal


"The design consists in the partial renovation of a small shopping centre in a residential quarter of the northern periphery of Lisbon (...) On the outside, the operation consisted in converting the existing stone façade with a new skin of galvanized metal sheets as a support for graphic design informing the visitor on the the mall´s commercial contest. Designer Mario Feliciano came up with a specific letter type that would fit the proportions of the metal sheet´s module, while artist Inês Teixeira developed a colour concept. Conceptually, this turned the banal metal sheets into a highly effective billboard." from: promontorio.net
