Project: Outdoors and yet indoors at the same time. This new ‘urban roof’ gives Hoge Vught shopping centre its own unique identity. The transparent cover has created a light public space that protects shoppers from the elements, and is a pleasant place to work and shop. In the evening, Hoge Vught bathes in the glow of floodlights which have been harmoniously incorporated into the form arms of the columns that support the freestanding roof. Atmospheric lighting can be provided for any event or happening using two square blocks of spotlights.
