  • Exterior and interior design

    The exterior and interior design of Porto Franco is characterised by the seaside industrial motif which creates a consistent design language both inside and outside the building. The seaside motif in the interior design is expressed by the tones and textures used inside the building.

  • Plenty of glass and open space

    Daylight is a very important and valuable design element at our latitude. Thanks to the glass top pedestrian street and high glass facade, even the lowest levels of the shopping centre are not deprived of daylight.

  • Courtyards and squares

    Porto Franco can be called a city within a city. The centre and its surroundings are a paradise for taking a walk, where tastefully designed green areas and sunny resting areas create a wonderful environment that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.
