Themed Retail Store at the Orlando International Airport - West
Location: Orlando, FL
Commercial & Mixed Use
Architecture, Interior Design
VOA provided conceptual design, architecture, interior design, and construction administration services for two themed stores that enhances the retail experience at the Orlando International Airport Landside terminal. The newly refreshed stores provide an enjoyable atmosphere while keeping with the brand’s signature style. The two projects were phased and the West Side Store opened in February 2011.
The West Side Store, themed “The World of Undersea Shamu”, quickly immerses the visitor into an “under the sea experience.” The encounter consists of a shimmering ceiling that mimics water motion and is enhanced by computer generated lighting, soothing aquatic sounds, floating “bubble” fixtures, eye-catching underwater video and artwork synonymous with SeaWorld and the Shamu experience.
