Text description provided by the architects. The four poles, separated by four corrifors, rise up like four great entry porches. The structure is covered with a white aluminium net, which is perforated and backlit. The shops of the Atoll are arranged in a dynamic layout, while the carpark blends into the garden.

The building´s envelope, 8-12m from the main structure, provides a protected area behind the shops for deliveries, away from the customers´ view at the center of the Atoll, and provides a clear passage for security services.

The outer cover runs from the inside out, following the access porches up to the roof to form an awning covering part of the promenade. On the inside, the awning rises up over a glass wall offering views of the various shop fronts. The shop front can be seen clearly avove and below the awning.
