Mercato Mall

LOCATION: DUBAI, UAE
USE: COMMERCIAL - LEISURE
SCOPE: INTERNAL & FAÇADE LIGHTING DESIGN
YEAR: 2006 

Mercato is the first themed shopping mall in the Middle East. From the outside, the building portrays a unique blend of Tuscan and Venetian architecture. Columns, arches and capitals form a delicate composition that takes us back the Renaissance period.

Our lighting plan supports and stresses this idea. By revealing selected architectural elements we created a dialogue between light and shadows, providing the building with a dramatic, almost theatrical image. Furthermore, the warm color palette is enhanced by the use of different color temperatures, depending on the hue and texture of the finish. The facade is perceived both as a single building and as a group of individual units.

Famous Italian architect, Daniele Morelli, designed the interior of the mall to replicate the concept of several squares, the center point of any Mediterranean town and the traditional location of the market.
