Amsterdam – MVSA Architects has been honoured at the European Property Awards in an online virtual ceremony on December 2nd for Westfield Mall of the Netherlands. This project, involving the transformation of a standard shopping centre into a next-level, all-round urban leisure destination, gained the acclaimed architecture office awards in three categories. MVSA is awarded in the category Retail Interior and received the highest level of five stars in Retail Architecture and Leisure Architecture.
Westfield Mall of the Netherlands In Leidschendam is a visionary remodelling of an existing building featuring an expansion from 70,000m2 to 200,000m2, making it the Netherlands’ largest mall. The new design adds many exciting functions and services to the retail offer and delivers the ‘wow’ factor – a strong and spectacular design identity that is architecturally ambitious and appropriate to the context. This is exemplified, for instance, by the flowing white lines of the façade, a graceful and unifying gesture based on the idea of a silk scarf wrapped around the building.
“Westfield Mall of the Netherlands offers a unique experience as a leisure attraction and next-level shopping venue with a high level of architectural ambition. We are honoured to receive no less than three European Property Awards for the project, which sets a whole new standard for shopping destinations in the age of the internet.”
– Roberto Meyer, founder and Principal Architect of MVSA
