Client: Valley Plaza Mall
Facts: Mall Renovation, Tile Design; Interiors 1.1 million SF retail
Description: Architecture Design Collaborative approached the renovation of Valley Plaza Mall from a traditional perspective, adding a contemporary twist. The single-story mall, which consists of broad concourses called for a dynamic non-linear tile pattern design. The tile design was developed with a mixture of large-format Italian porcelain tiles; a digitally enhanced terrazzo pattern, bold-rich-colorful tiles, and a realistic concrete tile. The concrete-style tile acts as the neutral canvas, while the blue hues of the colored tile play off-of the terrazzo textures. The angles of the pattern were explored in several iterations to achieve the movement desired between each color and texture while minimizing cuts and wasted material. The four colors and textures were defined by 4-rotations and each of the sections emphasized and defined with a brass transition to mimic that of traditional decorative terrazzo.
