An attractive new visual identity

Chapman Taylor, in collaboration with the Portuguese design studio BOOST, has created a new visual identity for the former Forum Sintra shopping centre, now named Alegro Sintra, in Sintra, near the Portuguese capital, Lisbon.

The existing BREEAM-certified shopping and leisure complex is a development of over 165,000m² comprising retail space, restaurants and leisure areas over three levels, as well as three underground parking floors.

Brand-aligned design

The redesign for the successful retail and leisure destination, now owned by Ceetrus, sees the main façade and the interiors reimagined for a new decade, including the foodcourt area, seating, playground and toilets. The refurbishment has been designed to align with the striking Alegro brand identity and will inform the design of the company’s other buildings.

Distinct themes and spaces

The internal area is supplemented by several outdoor terraces which provide great views of the surroundings. The building was envisaged as a series of juxtaposed diagonal malls, each with distinct themes, building systems and material palettes. Abundant greenery is used throughout, both externally and internally. There are also publicly accessible, landscaped roof spaces and terraces.

The design concept for the original shopping centre, which opened in 2011, was developed by Chapman Taylor together with Portuguese architects ARX. Forum Sintra won the 2012 Across Award for ‘Most Innovative Shopping Centre more than 50,000m²’.

Chapman Taylor, in collaboration with the Portuguese design studio BOOST, created this new visual identity for Alegro Sintra shopping centre on behalf of Ceetrus.
