The architecture of the stores features the “round arch”, a typical element of Italian architecture since ancient times, introduced in all four projects of the stores. The grey marble of the external facade designs a series of porticoes, almost as if to create the typical atmosphere of the arcades of some Italian cities.

Each store had the opportunity to personalize its space, save the metal arches that define the passage from one area to another

Large glass doors alternate with marble surfaces to create an exclusive ambience. Glory Casa wants to offer an italian lifestyle, thanks to a well-defined architectural code. [Txt Samantha Polvere-Photo Alan Grillo]
