Concept: As one of the Plaza Center malls around the world, there was great importance in maintaining and following the design style and feel developed specifically for the company and its brand identity. With an emphasis on the linear, central corridor of the mall, the architecture focuses particular attention on the mall’s entrance, food-court areas and central plaza space. The mall’s various skylights enhance elements of natural light within the architectural lighting design.
Challenge: Integrating suitable lighting solutions for the mall’s public walkways in fashion that complements the light from the mall’s window displays. These solutions need to correlate directly with an all-encompassing mall lighting architecture in order to ensure alignment with Plaza Center mall designs around the world.
Solution: By employing a linear light approach, RTLD provided an underlying, comprehensive feel and perspective throughout the mall’s main spaces. Round fixtures highlighted the mall’s expansive heights and long central corridor. Consecutive linear light and wall lights were used to create enhanced lighting for the mall entrances. In addition, decorative features were used to differentiate the lighting of the mall’s main central plaza and food courts, resulting in a particularly welcoming and warm atmosphere within mall spaces in which visitors receive a first/last impression of the mall, as well as areas where mall-goers tend to gather together.
