Returning to West Mall
Twenty one years ago Rawls helped conceive and develop the Swindon Designer Outlet and have recently returned to revitalise the West Mall. A bold and elegant refurbishment creates a new premium destination that allows the retail to have a greater presence.
Rawls were commissioned to create a dramatic change in the important listed building. Polished bronze floor inserts, feature lighting and stripped back pressed metal cladding compliment the heroes of the space, the Isambard Kingdom Brunel designed cast iron columns. Their full height have been treated with a liquid metal bronze paint, bringing a sense of warmth and drama to the space with a powerful depth of colour.
A range of hotel lobby style soft seating provides a welcoming and generous pause point where new walk-on-glass inserts allow views through to the impressive column bases.
