An interior transformation for a shopping destination
Square Footage: 250,000
The Galleria is the most recognizable shopping center in the Dallas area and houses some of the most elite names in the retail industry. Our renovation of the center for UBS Realty Investors LLC included all-new public spaces, interiors, finishes, identity, signage and wayfinding, state-of-the-art public lighting and contemporary art. A reconfigured ice rink at center court became an important component of the center's public space, which included new restaurants with café tables overlooking the rink. Infused with European ambience, the mall is invigorated as a social space with shopping, cafes, seating and people watching. This dramatic interior transformation is complemented by two additions to the west that add three signature restaurants new to the Dallas area. An elegant, 3-story glass entry to the mall was created at the main west entry and a landscaped plaza featuring a world-class fountain that visitors drive under as they enter signals the arrival of a renewed Galleria. The water jets are illuminated at night and can be seen from both bordering highways ensuring the Galleria's visibility and continuing its reputation as a shopping, eating and recreation destination.
