We worked closely with structural engineers, Atelier One to procure and deliver this unique Roof and managed to deliver a substantial cost reduction while ensuring the design integrity was maintained.

Dolce Vita Tejo is the world’s first shopping mall to use a new and innovative ETFE roof design with high performance Selective Filters and Low E coatings applied to the cushions. The design features 346 cushion elements with an average size of 10×10 meters. In addition,108 facade cushions were installed. In total more than 200,000 SqM of different ETFE membranes were produced in order to execute this outstanding project.
