Transformation of garden centre into shopping complex
Smiemans Projecten has transformed a traditional garden centre into an inspiring shopping environment of the well-known chain Avoca in Ireland, Dublin.
The garden centre was also built by Smiemans in 2003.
This project shows again a nice way to see the benefits of a glass building; it is easy to adjust and this way it has a minimal ecological footprint.
A Smiemans spokesperson said: "The construction was easily adapted. With an new insulated roof, we created an optimized shopping environment.The leisure centre with café and garden centre meets the latest technical requirements."
