December 2018 – Utrecht is a modern city with a rich medieval past located in the heart of the Netherlands. In the city centre is the biggest shopping mall in the country, Hoog Catharijne, that has undergone a major refurbishment as part of a large scale renovation project in Utrecht. The renovation of the popular yet outdated shopping mall, which welcomes 26 million visitors a year, included the introduction of the “City Room” (‘Stadskamer’ in Dutch). This newly built space has the function of connecting Utrecht train station to the Medieval city center, offering a new promenade through the mall. Its modern and attractive architecture is like a large glass box that serves as a public gathering space and is home to restaurants at street level and several new retailers on the upper floor.

The superior functional qualities of Corian® Solid Surface allow for upscale solutions that can withstand the normal wear and tear which comes with daily traffic. Corian® Solid Surface is also easy to clean and repairable if damaged. The tree-shaped LED installation in the Hoog Catharijne shopping mall in Utrecht will stand the test of time and maintain its original top quality aesthetics for many years to come.
