The shopping center My Zeil captivates through its funnel-shaped, structured glass facade facing the Zeil that lets in lots of daylight into the interior. As a result, a light and airy atmosphere exists on all of the building’s eight levels.
The spectacular MyZeil shopping mall designed by the Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas is part of the PalaisQuartier in Frankfurt am Main. It was opened on February 26, 2009 and offers a new dimension in terms of inner-city shopping.
The extraordinary architecture with its flowing forms and broad perspectives was complemented by an extensive light design, illuminated railings and organically curving lines of light in the ceilings.

The lines of light consist of a white and a red line which run parallel to each other to give the impression of a nocturnal street scene with white headlights and red tail lights.
The entire artificial lighting design followed a precise analysis of the daylight present in the mall. Due to the complex roof structure, a three-dimensional building model was needed to document how strongly sunlight would affect the shop facades.
