Detailed diagram

Current floor has additional hints

Signs with a complete list of stores and a detailed map of the shopping center are placed near the entrance. Smaller versions of the signs with a generalized store list are located near the escalators to help visitors find the right floor.

Escalators, the center’s locations with most foot traffic, have numbers which make them easier to find on maps and in real life.


Pictograms on escalators

Areas with similar goods and services are filled with one color. Icons show service areas and exits.

Navigation elements are placed both in the center's galleries and between the floors.



Consoles with replaceable pictograms hang in passageways to show the direction of travel. The icons represent various services, they can be easily distinguished from advertising and are seen from a distance.
