Polygone Rivièra: village in the city (creation)

24 november 2016

70,000 m2, 4 different districts, 10 cinema screens, 26 restaurants and 150 shops: those are the impressive figures of the newest commercial centre on the French south coast. Polygone Riviera is the first lifestyle mall in France. It is an experience centre rather than a traditional shopping centre, a total concept along the long Avenue des Alpes in the coastal town of Cagnes-sur-Mer. The first stone was laid 2 years ago. One thousand maple and plane trees were planted and now the newest flagship of the Riviera is ready to welcome up to 10 million visitors annually.

The building's architecture is contemporary with simple shapes and Provencal colours. An innovative concept means innovative architecture. Of course this includes sustainability. The pet subject of architects Philippe Caron and José Ignacio Galan Martinez was the Breaam certificate, which rewards buildings for their reduced impact on the environment and society. It is hardly surprising that natural stone was chosen for this project. The Beltrami Sud team in Fréjus was responsible for the timely and flexible delivery.
