One of the largest shopping and leisure centers in Greece with a fully retractable membrane roof of more than 2,600m² , winner on 2011 for the AFAI “Award of Excellence”.  ​

The complex aspect of the roof covering Athens Metro Mall was that the complete fabric roof of just about 2,600 m2 was to be retractable with a controlled driving mechanism. Each single fabric panel out of Tenara fabric is fully controlled and can be moved independently from the others. ​
