In 2014 Paleet has undergone an extensive refurbishment. The aim
has been to create a shopping destination with a strong
personality. The project sought to enable a continuation of the
shopping malls original character which was based on exclusive
materials and a hospitable atmosphere, translated into a new and
contemporary materiality with a rough feel.
The distinction between shared spaces and individual retailers
are important elements in the design of a shopping center. This
distinction took the form of urban walls. The shops retain their
individuality through acting as theatrical openings in the wall
whilst the restaurants transcend these lines and flow into the
shared spaces. The material palette combines terrazzo, copper,
cedar wood and leather. The new chandelier suspended above the main
atrium space is a true eye-catcher which creates various light
scenarios during the day.
