We take pride in watching people enjoying their shopping experience in marketplaces and shops designed by BSE 3D staff. Our experiences range from new-build shopping malls to niche fit-out design. The firm works with clients from international luxury brands to household names.
Designing destination spaces
BSE 3D’s experience of designing for a mix of leisure and entertainment demonstrates a thorough understanding of the retail experience that we believe is fundamental to the design of a successful shopping environment. Building designers, supported by the firm’s specialists in lighting and acoustics, can help create destination spaces that will enhance any shopping experience.
Shopper behaviour can be influenced by good design and the sophisticated dynamics of layout and display. There is both art and science in the way that anchor stores, pedestrian routes, food outlets and rest areas are designed into a shopping mall. BSE 3D specialists can apply advanced fluid dynamic modelling to help identify people behaviour and environmental analysis to ensure that retail environments are designed for beauty, safety and great customer experience, as well as for optimum people flow and turnover.
More sustainable shopping
Consumer demand for greater sustainability in retail is a relatively new driver in this market, but BSE 3D strives to design buildings that are lighter in environmental impact, from construction to operation. Our experience with major retailers helps us to develop new technologies that can make the sector’s practices greener, including more energy-efficient stores.
Mixing work, rest and play
Crucial to retail design is delivering appealing environments where people want to relax, shop, eat and socialise. Commercial office headquarters increasingly provide spaces for employees to eat and shop, obviating the need to leave the building. At their best, building, engineering and landscape design can make this work seamlessly.
In many regions, retail projects are embraced as part of mixed-use developments. Shopping malls may be planned within or alongside office, hotel and residential blocks. Airports also require designers to plan for extensive retail capacity and flexible spaces that appeal to shoppers in transit. BSE 3D’s designers have worked on a variety of international mixed-use projects, especially those including high-rise buildings. For more information please email us or telephone us.
