West Edmonton Mall Gourmet Court 3
One of the biggest malls in the world is undergoing a refurbishment program to redefine it as a modern temple of high style in line with current international design trends. The food court design was inspired by the concentric circles caused by the ripple effect of a droplet of water in a pond. From the seating configuration to the ceiling design, the ring shapes create movement and sinuousness.
The jewel-like lighting snakes through the food court creating soft curves of rainbow-toned falling petals. The distinctive landscaping scheme with its topiaries and mannequins marries the look of a luxury hotel garden with a high fashion appeal. The generous use of white contributes to the airy and weightless quality of the space devoid of natural light.
