Case Study: Cotton On
The Galleria is a hot destination in Houston. More than 26 million visitors yearly grace the 2.4 million square foot mall, with its 400 fines stores and restaurants, two high-rise hotels and three office towers that make it the city’s top tourist and retail destination. With banks, swimming pools, ice rinks, children’s entertainment areas, salons, tailors, and even a post office, the shopping center is a mini-city.
Modeled after Milan’s revered Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, The Galleria is “internationally respected for its architectural panache” and its mixed-use urban environment. Not surprisingly, retail spaces here feel pressure to be memorable. With the application of a NanaWall, Cotton On provides an example of how to transform a limited opening into a remarkable entrance.
