West Edmonton Mall Bourbon Street
The dark and moody tone of Bourbon street is reminiscent of an outdoor nightclub where young and old can stroll and eat ''outdoors''. The neon signage adds an element of authenticity to the scene as it recalls iconic Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Ceiling-suspended metal cylinders with LED heads are a modern adaptation of string lights common at outdoor street festivals and dining terraces. Their zig-zag pattern create a dynamic interplay with the horizontal wood ceiling slats. The materials are a study in contrasts between high gloss and matte rustic resulting in a unique blend of finished surfaces.
