Baltia Mall — Shopping center

The Baltia (Baltic) Mall is the largest shopping center in the Kaliningrad region. It is designed to be a center with regional significance, targeting different groups of people, and to be the perfect place for both family trips and for younger people to spend their time in.
The geometry of the shopping center involves wide galleries, high ceilings and a lot of daylight zenithal lanterns above the galleries. The project employs a classical one-level module scheme.

Concept — feeling of nature

Total area: 53477 sq.m.
Project area: 9382 sq.m.
3 theme zones

nature
atmosphere
sea
forest
beach

When designing the interior, our main task was to create as comfortable a space as possible for relaxa-tion and shopping. We wanted to convey a feeling of comfort and a friendly atmosphere, whilst creat-ing a memorable visual style
The main idea of the design was to create the feeling of the nature of the Baltic Sea area. Thus, the shopping center is divided onto three theme zones: a forest zone, a beach zone and a sea zone. For each zone, we tried to use materials which would communicate the suggested thematic feeling. The theme of nature implies the use of wood textures, a lot of greenery, smooth transitions and the use of light, natural colours.

For the floor finishing we chose neutral, shaded ceramic granite tiles. The floor layout consists of a smooth, flowing design, plus gradient transitions from one color to another are expressed through the creation of an unusual image, which imitates shadows cast by the leaves of trees.
