Morocco Mall is the largest shopping centre in Africa with 250 000 sqm of floor space in Casablanca. The mall was designed by Architect Davide Padoa of Design International, London, and opened on December 1st, 2011. The mall features a massive 1,000,000 litre aquarium that contains over 40 different species of fish. Visitors have the opportunity to take a ride through the centre of the cylinder- shaped aquarium by using a round panoramic lift fitted with Wittur Luna doors. Moreover, Wittur also developed a unique closing system for its Luna round doors in a second panoramic elevator system which is installed in the shopping area. The bespoke closing system is used to adapt the panoramic round doors to the oval-shaped glass elevator shaft.
It is like riding in the Nautilus, Capt. Nemo’s submarine in Jules Verne’s “20,000 leagues under the sea”
