Steel Saint Etienne (France)
Contexte & enjeux
Architectural impact, iconic design, environmental excellence, surprising client experience and targeted merchandising mix… Located along the A72 and the main entrance to the city of Saint-Etienne, STEEL will be a strong, highly contemporary architectural object that will offer 70,000 m² of shopping and leisure.
Its spectacular roof will play with the lines of the Saint-Etienne landscape, highlighting the views towards the city center.
The facades, another key element of its identity, will be clad in a metallic and luminous mesh created specially by designer Joran Briand. STEEL will be a true urban park defined around a natural vegetated axis that will include ecological ponds and glades, each with a unique function (biodiversity, boardsports, games…).
