Arkadia is the largest shopping mall in Poland, visited annually by nearly 20 million customers. The new exterior landscape is part of a wider regeneration programme of the whole centre that will be renewed and extended. As part of the project upgrade Match worked alongside the Architect to provide the lighting design for the whole exterior masterplan and the initial phase was to provide a special yet unique lighting scheme to the new playground area to reflect the fun and playful nature of the space.
We wanted to create a well lit and uniform scheme, safe yet inspiring for children to spend time and play. The final solution sees a catenary lighting system complimentary to the use and function of the space attracting visitors and turning the playground into a special place come night-time.
“Match is a very professional and creative group of designers. They understand the business need of being flexible and always looking for the best way to solve the problems without the loss of quality within the design solutions.”
