City Centre One Zagreb West
Client: Gradski Centar d.o.o.
Location: Zagreb, Croatia 2004 - 2006
The heart of the matter
City Centre One Jankomir in Zagreb

City Center One, in the Jankomir district, is the largest shopping centre in Zagreb. An important factor was traffic access from Lubjanska Avenija, one of the busiest main roads.

The shopping centre was designed by Kaufmann / Partner and their local partner Otto Baric, on one of the last sites optimally linked with the main traffic axis.

With an area of 61,000 m², on two floors, and 1,700 parking spaces, it sets new standards for conditions in Zagreb.

Architecture
The mall is designed according to high-quality and state-of-the-art architecture, but without the frequently employed idea of "theming". This means no pseudo-Romantic "experience" architecture, but a clear-cut language of forms conducive to shaping portals for the individual shops – neither overlapping nor competitive, as is often the case in shopping mall design.

The building is well-lit and has a pleasant atmosphere. Despite logistic and budgetary limitations, the architecture offers optimal top-quality design.

The exterior is uniform: the various functions, such as the parking decks, are part of the compact complex; the main entrances are clearly accented and the necessary advertising space is integrated into the façade.

Within a shopping precinct, attention is focused on the central passage, which is also a kind of exterior; nevertheless, in City Center One great care was taken with the exterior of the whole complex, which continues the distinctive architectural design of the interior.

Phase 1: 2004-2006
