One of the main stars of the many high end brands and shops of Morocco Mall will certainly be the Galeries Lafayette store. With very few stores of the brand outside of France, the Casablanca store will surely add to the prestigious reputation of the brand. The store’s design, which is a center piece of the mall, has been likened to a pearl within a shell, reinforcing the overall concept of the mall as a shell on the beach. But it is not only the pearl shape of the store, that makes it stand out. Its state of the art, back illuminated façade, is both a hommage and a 21st century reincarnation of the original store on Boulevard Hausmann in Paris. An intelligent lighting design graphically creates the shape of the Art Nouveau Dome of the original store on the façade , which illuminates the surrounding mall area and creates a glamourous atmosphere. The façade is expected to become one of the signature designs of both the famous brand as well as Morocco Mall’s architect, Design International.
