The area stretches its way into the connecting main street of the outlet centre. With its unique location of different themes that creates attraction
for its visitors. It should be a unique experience that you don’t find in other outlets because it plays with visitors senses. Each sub-area has its own, individual characteristics, just as a human brain with its folded nerve system and concentrated areas that registers and communicates each single sense of perception. The movement between these different atmo¬spheres and stimulations of the senses – such as sounds, scents, material mix-tures, physical activities etc.- is the fundamental vitality for the proposal.

In some areas of the outlet area the paths are narrow, in other areas they a zone of luxuriant forest can be inte¬grated with wild plantation. Some areas can have wild honeysuckle and ferns while other areas in the zone along the path consists of a theme of wetlands with trees in a water mirrors. On a late summer’s night you can walk through grass fields and starlight or on an early morning see the mist rising from the water ponds.
