Completed Gliwice Forum shopping centre’s transformation soon to be unveiled

Internal modernisation work on the Forum Shopping Centre in Gliwice, Poland, is under way and set to complete in late October 2017. The ten-year-old development is set to be transformed inside and out, with nearly all customer areas being refreshed. Work on the building exterior will follow.

Movement through the centre will be improved by changes to the common areas, including public toilets. Access to and from the Carrefour hypermarket and the first floor will be greatly enhanced.

A landing in the atrium will be removed to allow installation of a stage area which will serve as the home of events and artistic performances, providing a focal point for the centre.

Chapman Taylor’s Warsaw studio provided the concept and design for this much-anticipated transformation of the Forum shopping centre.
