Liverpool Interlomas Department Store, Interlomas
The Liverpool department store in Interlomas, a suburb of Mexico City, successfully combines the functions of a park and shopping center. Besides being a department store, Liverpool creates a public space, allowing it to play a new role as a social meeting place. The round, futuristic-looking building with a silver façade opened in 2011 as the flagship of the Liverpool chain.
Its four storeys, with a total of 30,000 square metres of retail space, are connected by an atrium that is flooded with daylight. Changing materials and colours create warmer shades as customers ascend. In this way they discover a whole new world on each floor and encounter impressive visual merchandising. The climax is the parklike rooftop garden covering 3,000 square metres, which includes a gourmet food area.
