Our second project in Middle East has been finished!
The Marassi Galleria Mall located in the kingdom of Bahrain, with aprox. 200.000 sqm of useful areas!

The Marassi Galleria Mall will host five interconnected lifestyle urban districts, each with a theme tailored to a specific customer taste: the high-street, the Family Plaza, a Waterfront Dining Promenade, an animated rooftop and The Luxury Courtyard. All this places will be interconnected under an ETFE Roof system of 22.000 sqm, allowing sunshine and a sky view while going through the mall.

The structure consists of parallel steel arches that have a maximum span of 35 meters. The ETFE cushions run parallel to the arches to provide cover for the passage.
