Inside we find a large high-end jewelery and watchmaker that has been a benchmark in Andorra for generations, as well as a watchmaker’s, perfumery and accessories workshop and the EL Diamant restaurant of the renowned Michelin-starred Chef Nandu Jubany. With all this we created The Embassy – More Than Jewelery by Suïssa Joiers, a slogan that we saw very clearly from the first moment.

There has been an extension of the existing shop windows, an opening to the outside that was previously non-existent and a large LED screen on the façade as a claim and advertisement of what the center offers inside. All this to achieve the main purpose of the order; make the center visible and get the public to enjoy a unique place in Andorra.

CODINA as Architectural Mesh for cladding

The Embassy shopping centre by Suissa Joiers in Andorra La Vella is located in the unique “Diamant” building, which has fourlevels and occupies a surface area of 2,000 m2. Its 23-metre-long facade is divided into three large shop windows that havebeen renovated by Moom Architects. The aim of the project was to give more visibility to the commercial building, so theexisting fronts were enlarged and a big LED screen was placed over the glass envelope.

The exterior presentation to the public at street level has been designed to reflect what we are going to find inside: a high-endjewellery and watch shop. For this purpose, the walls have been covered with Codina Architectural's gold-painted stainlesssteel MIES R metal mesh. The 28 m2 of architectural mesh have been placed in waves around the opaque perimeter of theground floor and are bathed in LED lighting strips to enhance their brightness and act as a visual attraction.
