The interior of The Emporium Plovdiv – MGallery corresponds with the shape of an ancient Forum – a place where modernity, premium quality and smart technology meet the original historic features of the building.

The interior design was commissioned to Sundukovy Sisters S+S, one of the fastest growing and creative architectural studios in the hospitality industry and winners of the Designers of the year 2018 title awarded by The Gold Key Awards, New York.
