Shopping and aquatic shows

The ‘Brand Village’ at Villefontaine, created by promotion company La Compagnie de Phalsbourg and designed by Italian architect Gianni Ranaulo, opened its doors in May 2018. The setting of this first up-scale outlet village near Lyon surrounds an artificial lake, which spans 3,000 m2. Gianni Ranaulo called on the expertise of Crystal Group to design the lake, and the water and light shows set against a background of fire.
