The L’atoll Angers retail center is located in the heart of the French town. Designed by Antonio Virga Architecte and AAVP Architecture firm, this futuristic structure is more reminiscent of a sci-fi space station rather than a shopping mall.
The structure's atypical design is luxe and futuristic, shaped in an elliptical curve that travels across a vast natural landscape. From its perforated aluminum facade to its pearly white glow that is back-lit, the building is designed to be a getaway for city shoppers.
The L’atoll Angers retail center was designed with sustainability in mind with a focus on renewable energy sources, ecologically responsible materials and natural lighting. The building is also home to sophisticated waste management and heating/cooling systems.
