Urban transformation

One of the oldest and most renowned shopping centers in Bucharest, Bucuresti Mall benefits from its central urban location and a stable tenant mix.

Over the years, the old market hall building had seen three successive extensions, yet there was no overall planning. Tired and in need of cohesion, the mall was in need of a thorough facelift and a repositioning in the city. In transforming the outdated mall, the architects focused on quality of place over quantity. The design draws thematically on the legacy of the city's great gardens with floral abstractions and layers of imagery that evoke color, light and nature in the urban environment.

Filigreed panels of leafy branches line the facade while inside the circumference of the heroic dome is defined by two rings of iconic graphics. The first ring is a photo mural of the city landmarks and the second a band of bright, playful floral details. The interior courts are light, refined and elegant with a touch of whimsy. The redesign is smart and fresh with a nod to the rich history of place that appeals to the upscale, local market.
