“Citymall” is an existing mall in Saint Petersburg that consists of three parts; a hypermarket, a shopping centre and a Leroy Merlin. Currently they’re completely dissonant and look like three separate buildings put together. The main objective of the Citymall facade refurbishment is to bring together these three parts as a whole, by the use of a skin.
The skin is made of lamelles which have different densities to break the scale, produce shadows and protect an otherwise flat plain and exposed facade.
