Panorama-Center, Thun BE
The Panorama Center - an urban landmark
The linear building shell, flexibility for tenants and an interior flooded with light - these are the outstanding features of the shopping centre which forms a striking urban ensemble with the stadium.
The centre makes a compact, almost monolithic impression. Its signature incision along its whole length forms a generous entrance sphere. Wrapped in aluminium, the building looks very high-tec. At the same time, the material reacts sensitively to its surroundings and the light. The openings appear like a barcode with the lines condensing and spreading.
The mall connects the parking level with the two shopping floors. It offers a neutral stage for the shops. Funnels capture the light and create a bright, pleasant atmosphere.
