Why it's hidden?

‘DO IT YOURSELF’ Shopping center in St.Petersburg reflects the design intention of theCollective Amsterdam for a given site. 
The CollectiveAmsterdam looks for the best possible sollutions for the site and
the given program.

In order to find the optimal sollution for the shopping center the Collective allowed itself the freedom
to look for configurations that go further than the mere placement of the shopping programme onto the site. We believe that this public building can play a key role in the development not only of the site itself but also for the surrounding area, the city and its stakeholders.
 An architecture that combines the qualities of a well designed shopping center with ad- ditional public and private programme has a range of benefits for users , the city and investors.

It will be attractive for a wider range of usergroups than initially intended, it will create a high quality public space for users and visitors and it will remain attrac- tive and competitive towards other shop- ping centers in the future.
