Redevelopment of outdoor spaces to encourage pedestrians and integrate environmental values.

In recent years, this urban centre (lifestyle centre) has based its growth on the development of high quality outdoor spaces. However, large areas are still occupied by vehicles and the high volume of traffic has left little room for pedestrians on the site.

Groupe Rousseau Lefebvre was mandated to review certain aspects of the outdoor spaces and design public places that will provide animation, host occasional events and propose a comfortable environment for the customers.
