New Mall of Switzerland, shopping and leisure center, Ebikon

On the Schindler Group's unused land reserves in Ebikon, Lucerne, one of the largest shopping centers in Switzerland is being built: the "Mall of Switzerland". This provides the heterogeneous agglomeration area in Rontal with an urban structure to accommodate the growth in the region.

At the heart of the ensemble is the central plaza Ebisquare, where open-air events can take place. From here, access is provided to not only the "Mall of Switzerland", but also to the leisure center, the future hotel and a new residential development.

The individual volumes and their respective functions are clearly differentiated by their architectural language. Media can be displayed on the facade of the leisure building; the first floors of the public buildings are glazed and open out onto the square. This change of materials visually separates the first floor from the upper floors and establishes an appropriate sense of scale. In contrast to the translucent, soft and flowing "skin" of the shopping center, the leisure center with multiplex cinema appears as a monolithic structure.

With a total sales floor area of 46,000 m² for around 160 shops, restaurants and bars, the "Mall of Switzerland" is the largest shopping experience center in Central Switzerland, and embodies Swiss values, both inside and out
