Kevin Kennon Architects is delighted and proud to be a member of the dynamic team as the Design Architect for the milestone Glendale Galleria Renovation project. Our challenge has been to rethink the 1.5 million Square foot Glendale Galleria to create a new shopping experience that encompasses the most forward looking concepts in retail design. We have completely transformed the mall into a vibrant destination that enhances the world class shops and department stores that have long been the hallmark of the Galleria.
We have created a front door on Central Avenue that identifies the new Glendale Galleria brand. One of the most prominent features is a new black stone runway that ramps through the exterior to the interior and diffuses into a distinctive pixilated floor pattern that reverberates throughout the mall. We have selected the finest marble, granite, stainless steel, and state of the art lighting in this renovation to create a luxurious new environment. We have opened up sight lines by exposing and enhancing the sculptural beauty of the ceiling vaults, eliminated most the brick for a more elegant feel, and created a stronger connection throughout the mall with escalator reconfiguration- ultimately achieving the goal of giving the Glendale Galleria customer a new and improved shopping experience.
