The ambition was high, sky high. The interior was to be unique, exciting and long lasting. It should offer the customer an extraordinary experience. The assignment included creating the interior design for all public spaces; restaurants, lounges, play parks, concourses and squares.

The furniture was to enhance the themes of the squares, connect to the materials of the concourses and add fun and surprising detailing. All materials was to be durable but sophisticated; leather, solid wood, terrazzo. The interior stood the test of the opening week and the years to follow.
