The Wall

Both a sound barrier and a shopping centre

The Wall is one of the most visionary architecture projects inthe Netherlands. This huge futuristic shopping centre not only provides entertainment facilities and a unique shopping experience which offers everything your heart could ever desire, it also forms a giant sound barrier between the heavily used A2 motorway linking Eindhoven with Amsterdam and the residential area behind. Megastores belonging to the retail chain Toys R Us, the Dutch electrical appliance retailer BCC and the Topshelf department store are all equipped with state-of-the-art Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning technology. An innovative VRF system based on the R2 series cools and heats using a water-cooled heat exchanger. These three stores in this vast shopping mall are thus assured permanent optimum air conditioning and heating comfort.
