Level Shoe District, Dubai Mall, U.A.E

dpa lighting consultants were tasked with illuminating what was, at the time, stated to be the largest shoe emporium in the world, and located in Dubai Mall, UAE. This vast space was broken down into zones and each zone had its own identity and ambience. The lighting design whilst providing some degree of consistency also had to adapt the different requirements of each individual zone.

Ceiling heights are relatively high and so metal halide reflector lamps were employed to provide both ambient and display lighting from the ceiling. This was supplemented by integrated ceiling cove lighting to enhance the profile of each area and provide additional feature lighting. Further display lighting is integrated into the furniture and a number of interior design features were enhanced again with integrated lighting, on the whole LED.
