Dolce Vita Coimbra is an integral part of an existing stadium and designed as a five-story mall that wraps around one-third of the stadium. The result was an evocative shopping experience, weaving customers around existing column locations in order to create a main socialization space… a grand entry pavilion. Each interior form was conceived as an urban collision with the main mall way designed between a large curved form and an urban building culminating with a panoramic elevator within a perforated metal skin. Coimbra was the anchor development in the revitalization of the core downtown.
