Following the successful completion of the Nightclub/Play 360 redevelopment, Aviva asked Colman Architects to update and refresh the public realm which comprises the 1,000 space car park, cinema and restaurant malls.

The scheme was presented to the tenants in June 2018 and works commenced on site in Spring 2019.

The scheme included new lighting for the car park, reasphalting and the creation of an events space at the front of the cinema and restaurant mall entrance.

The glass canopies fronting onto the car park were renewed, the elevations refreshed and jumbrellas installed.

Within the cinema and restaurant malls, new ceilings, flooring and LED lighting have been installed and purpose designed spiral lights adding a unique feature to the public areas.
