Terrazas de Mayo

Terrazas de Mayo is an iconic new shopping centre located 30km west of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Providing 130,000m2 of retail and leisure space the project was Broadway Malyan’s first completed building in South America. It transforms and expands an ageing shopping centre into a bright and colourful new destination. The completed scheme includes a 10,900m2 Carrefour hypermarket, 130 further retail spaces offering a wide range of brands, a 3,500m2 food court, a ten-screen cinema and 24-lane bowling alley.

The design concept was inspired by the natural environment and large trees that surround the centre. Large windows, terraces, skylights and courtyards integrate the interior and exterior environments, creating a bright and engaging experience for visitors. The most dramatic design feature is a large projecting roof, which cantilevers over the entrance. Integrated LED lighting allows for illumination in different colours, creating a dynamic entrance to the shopping centre.
