Brief information about the project from an architectural point of view:











Galeria Amber has been designed as a mixed-use retail, service and entertainment facility which provides an interesting offer in each of the functions. It includes a one-storey underground car park and a two-storey above-ground level car park in order to ensure convenient access for motorized customers. The above-ground part of the facility consists of two full retail and service floors as well as the second floor which includes a cinema. The facility is adjusted to the needs of the disabled. The facility combines a number of shapes of varied spatial and material characteristics, thanks to which the effect of excessively long, boring facades has been avoided. They have well thought-out tectonics and desired fragmentation. Its section facing Górnośląska Street has been designed with a soft line and it features the main landmark of the spatial composition, with glass cladding in various shades of amber.
