Donauplex is an extension to Donau Zentrum which is currently the largest shopping centre in Vienna. The area is home to the cinema complex and also the food & beverage’s hall regularly visited by shoppers and the local community. Match worked closely with the client and design team to upgrade and modernise this space to encourage greater footfall.
The concept was to create a green, dynamic and outdoor/indoor environment where people could meet, work and spend time. There was a desire to maximise the feeling of a well day lit space during day-time despite having large covered ceilings throughout. To overcome this design challenge, large bespoke colour tune-able light panels were designed to mimic the cool feeling of daylight but would slowly become warmer towards night-time. The lighting design was carefully planned so all plants were well lit to grow whilst fitting choices were made to fully compliment the interior design, materials & finishes.
