Victoria Square is a multi-leisure and shopping complex located in the heart of the city of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Besides spanning over four stories of both local and international retail brands, restaurants and a cinema, Victoria Square is also famed for its design. While operating like a mall, the design of the complex itself is a rather open multi-street structure that somewhat connects to the streets outside of the complex itself, making the transition from “outside” to “inside” the mall seamless. You may even have trouble acknowledging if you’re actually in or out.
Besides this complex’s interestingly seamless connection to the main streets outside, Victoria Square is also linked to a beautifully designed glass dome on the top, where visitors can get a panoramic view of the city and even miles beyond. This intentionally designed dome has since become an icon contributing to Belfast’s skyline.
