The Galleria is a shopping, dining and entertainment destination known to host a list of sought-after restaurants and retail brands.
The ceiling above the internal court is a skylight deliberately designed with beams that offer generous light all while reflecting it sufficiently to distribute the heat away from its visitors. It also creates a geometric shadow that visually decorates the atrium halls.
Its differentiation is further defined by a facade constructed of 3D glass fibre reinforced concrete panels custom designed for the project.
