Planning and realization of a department store insinde a shopping mall — 1A, 02 Centre Road, Colombo, Sri Lanka — 5,000 m² — December 2019 — Odel PLC
Integrated brand presence
One Galle Face, a striking new complex of four buildings on the coast of Sri Lanka’s major metropolis, Colombo, is the country’s first internationally developed and managed mixed-use project. Its mall contains the three-story department store that blocher partners developed for Odel. In order to create the perfect staging for Odel’s diverse range of wares – from cosmetics to watches, from luggage, textiles and home articles to sporting goods – the interior designers went for a minimalist framework using materials that also reflect this subtle approach.
Set against the contrasting warmth of wooden slats and cool white, the wares receive their due space. The pattern developed especially for Odel is used as a ceiling highlight, functioning as a design bracket. In each department, merchandise is staged on existing, signature furnishings that blocher partner has designed especially for Odel, thereby ensuring high recognition and experience values for the customer.
