The Cinisello Balsamo Shopping Centre on the outskirts of Milan was the first shopping mall ever built in Italy (1974). The complex is currently undergoing a renovation program, with consideration to the internal distribution of spaces and the appearance of the external facades.
The intervention aims to update the shopping mall image and functionality. The surface of the new facades is made up of alveolar polycarbonate panels with rear lighting. A multi-storey car park has
also been added to the complex, with its load-bearing structure of reinforced concrete hidden by a stainless steel skin.
