Construction of the new Dolce Vita Shopping Centre, A Coruña]

The Dolce Vita shopping centre is located in the La Grela Industrial Estate, one of the most important industrial areas in the city of A Coruña, just a few minutes from the town centre, to which it is perfectly connected. It is located on a 175,000 m2 plot of land, and has a total floor area of 75,000 m2, designed for an annual influx of some seven million visitors.

The shopping centre consists of a unique building with two floors above ground, characterised by the arrangement of a series of roof skylights in different colours to create a bright and avant-garde space. The facades have also been designed with a scheme of various types of curtain wall.

The centre also has floors below ground level exclusively for parking, with a total capacity of 3,000 vehicles.

Due to the industrial origin of the plot, old industrial buildings (some of which had fibre cement elements) were demolished before construction began, and contaminated soil was treated. The use of explosives for lowering the ground should also be highlighted, given the particular geology of the area.
