​New images and video released of Plaza Río 2 in Madrid

Stunning new photos have been created to showcase the successful shopping and leisure development, Plaza Río 2. The photos, created by Chapman Taylor's Ben Ghibaldan, illustrate why the centre has become a key destination on Madrid's retail scene.

Overlooking the River Manzanares, Plaza Rio 2 is a 130,000m² retail and leisure development which provides a mix of fashion, food, restaurants and entertainment. Visitors are met by an elegant blond granite and glass curtain façade, with terracing and a large, transparent LED screen.

The interior is a light-filled, double-height mall with a glazed skylight and an LED cloud to supplement the natural light. Detailed decoration is added throughout the centre. Its 180 shops, restaurants and leisure facilities are served by 1,500 parking spaces.

Plaza Rio 2 allows for beautiful views of the river and the Madrid Rio Park, which has recently been developed to provide an ideal area for walks, recreation, sports and cultural events. Sustainability is a key aim of the design, and advanced energy saving systems are installed to this end.
