The fencing stretching for 70 metres along the road front was constructed out of extra clear, reinforced, layered sheets of glass of exceptional size and weight, with white serigraphs inside the glass, making in the entire project’s most distinctive graphic pattern. Sheets of glass fixed on huge stanchions with special sections made with Montastahl profiles. Entrance to the centre is through four totally concealed metal gates running vertically on a motorised basis. Inside the courtyard Extravega has constructed fencing around the Vodafone refreshments area, as well as four metal emergency staircase and glass parapets with stainless steel banisters welded and satinized on-site.
