Plaza Central Centro Comercial Shopping Mall

Bogotá, Colombia

Plaza Central is a shopping mall in Bogota, located in one of the most dynamic business belts in Colombia. It has 815,904 sqft with a wide offer of prestigious brands both at the domestic and international level.

This mall has five squares splitting the space in thematic areas: sports, fiction, theater, events and news. As a special feature, Plaza Central has a high-performance back lighted façade.

How Max Compact Exterior HPL Panels Added Value

Straight lines, curves, colors, and strategic positions of the panels that allow a backlighting design is what Max Compact Exterior brings to this 150,700 sqft façade.

The wide color range capabilities of FunderMax allowed the usage of different color palettes.

The ease of fabrication and installation, helped to create curved long arms on both sides of each entrance, welcoming people into the mall.

A curved façade in one of the corners hides a backlighting system that transforms the building at night, offering the appeal of a spectacle.

Last, but not least, the whole building, with its Fundermax envelope shows the shape of a Colombian traditional hat when it is observed from the air.
