The original La Lucia Mall was one of the early shopping centres designed by Bentel Associates in the 1970’s. In the early 2000’s, Bentel Associates redesigned La Lucia as an intimate high-end centre offering an exclusive shopping experience. Having undergone four extensions over the last thirty years, the centre required a comprehensive external and internal refurbishment.
The revised design sought to clarify mall interiors with a modern contemporary ambience. The main design feature, a centralised oval-shaped atrium and court, simplifies orientation and increases the overall legibility of the centre. The tensile cable glass roof is another significant design feature.
