The project refers to the landscape, interior and lighting design of all the public spaces of a brand new destination and experience small scale mall. The deliverable was to support by spatial design the brand positioning we were provided. Creating a vibrant, urban gathering venue, that will be preferred by upper scale, quality lovers for its unique assortment of services and its welcoming environment.
Developed in the heart of the urban fabric, Floreasca avenue, as small scale, central and intimate real estate raised key issues of elevated customer expectations and certain considerations towards sustainable growth. The overall design had to unify indoor and outdoor in a community driven location, that would attract brand believers, feeling bonded enough to spend their leisure time for body and mind rejuvenating activities.
The notion of centrality and direct connection to the community, along with the map location forming a heart, become the inspiration for the logo designed by Brandient, an award winning practice. The logo then is transformed into spatial design, forming the connecting element from the ground to the top level of the atrium. Research findings determined the market, business and branding context delivered along with the niche brief. The brief was alanyzed according to international research regarding recreation, vacation scapes, spatial design elements and sustainability methodologies. Green Stormwater Infrastructure practices, data driven lifestyle, and Future Cities Design Elements, were organically incorporated both for the outdoor architectural and lighting design, as well as the public areas of the interior. The aim was to create content and context for an urban experience destination, an establishment for multi cultural backgrounds seeking quality standards.
