Forum Coimbra

Forum Coimbra is a multi award-winning retail centre, located on the site of a former textile factory and commanding magnificent hilltop views over the River Mondego, the city of Coimbra and beyond. Cut into the hillside, the development uses a variety of forms, changing massing and feature towers to create a striking skyline facing the city. The interior spaces are equally complex with triple-height boulevards, light-wells and bridges creating visual stimulation. Outdoor terraces offers views over the surrounding landscape.

Working in close partnership with the client’s team, a development of outstanding impact and value, both to the city and to the client was achieved. Forming the first stage of the city extension masterplan, the 48,000m² GLA mall includes approximately 150 retail units, a multi-screen cinema, food court and leisure facilities, drawing over eight million visitors annually.

Broadway Malyan provided seven design disciplines to the project, including architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, graphic design and branding.
