Parklake Plaza, Bucharest
Parklake Plaza is a new destination shopping centre, uniquely located in the heart of Bucharest and adjacent to a popular park with boating lake. This connection with nature was used as the starting point for the design.
A dramatic copper skeletal portico faces the street, its colour and pattern drawing inspiration from the autumnal colours of the park and filtered light of the tree canopies. The park-side entrance features large, fully glazed boxes that break down the boundary between inside and outside, shopping centre and park while also being reminiscent of the great glass-houses and winter gardens of the 19th Century.
The theme continues inside, with the interior design featuring modern interpretations of tree houses, follies, a frozen lake, labyrinth and winter garden.
