Emporia Shopping Center

Shopping Shangri-La

Sweden’s first environmentally-certified shopping centre is a green haven of retail therapy and design inspiration.

A visit to the Emporia Shopping Center combines a shopping experience with an opportunity to enjoy the latest in sustainable design. The imaginative interiors are easy to navigate thanks to six colourful piazzas in which lifts and escalators play the starring visual role. We supplied custom escalator balustrades and other components to match the distinctive themes.

Low lifelong impact

With 25,000 visitors expected to visit daily, the smooth flow of people and goods was accounted for early on when we provided detailed early-phase traffic calculations.

Based on those estimates and taking into consideration the stringent environmental requirements, we installed a wide range of transit solutions equipped with the latest energy-saving features, including the new KONE DirectDrive for escalators and autowalks.

Our solutions ensure smooth people flow in one of Scandinavia’s biggest shopping centres.

"By providing project-specific energy consumption calculations, KONE ensured that the Emporia scored the necessary points for BREEAM certification", says Project Manager Ingvar Nohlin from Steen & Ström
