For this project, we were required to design the complete interior of this shopping centre. We designed the main mall, the food deck, the furniture, the main entrance, the signage, the customer service desks, the interior planting and the lighting design for the whole shopping centre.
Within the centre, we dedicated an area as a Gallery space to exhibit historic images of Blackpool. We also worked with local photographer David Nightingale to reproduce his contemporary photographs of Blackpool within the mall. This area of the shopping centre is frequently cited as being the favourite part of the centre for visitors and the photographs are now reproduced and sold to visitors.
After the opening of Houndshill Shopping Centre, Blackpool moved up 20 places from 86th to 66th in UK retail venue rankings.
