Westroads Mall Food Hall (2015, DLR Group)
Diners at the newly designed Westroads Mall Food Hall enjoy an elegant fireplace, lounge and bar areas, and a variety of indoor and outdoor seating options. DLR Group's design relocates the food court and uses space planning, branding, and lighting to create a warm, contemporary, and hip dining space for one of the primary malls in Omaha, Nebraska. A variety of refined materials, textures, colors and iconic local imagery relate to the overall refresh promoting local experience. A luxury restroom features an attractive lounge and waiting area. The design also involved the challenges of raising the roof to make a distinctive entry. The clerestory windows revitalize the facade and provide natural lighting and outdoor connections.
