The building permit for MVSA Architects’ 'Mall of the Netherlands' has officially been approved by the municipality of Leidschendam. Commissioned by Unibail Rodamco, the project entails a renovation and extension of the existing Leidsenhage shopping center, as well as an entirely new interior design.

In order to adapt to changing needs of consumers and the evolving role of the physical store since the popularization of online shopping, Leidsenhage is being transformed and given a completely new identity. The project centers on “a customized design that binds the strong diversity and ever-changing retail landscape.”

Inspired by the concept of a draped silk scarf, the façade of the Mall brings together the extension and existing buildings in the complex.

“Our concept for 'Mall of the Netherlands' is based on the idea of one gesture, one design, one identity. We believe it gives the shopping center the allure and comfort it deserves,” noted MVSA Architects exectutive director Roberto Meyer.

The 'Mall of the Netherland' will feature a Central Plaza that will connect all wings of the building, as well as a Dining Plaza that will serve as a “hospitality hotspot” on the first floor of the complex.

The Mall is expected to be completed in the beginning of 2019.
