Winter Park Village Re-Imagined
// Mixed Use
Reimagining the Winter Park Village to be a healthy and inclusive 18-hour community with new parks and public squares.
We’re developing a new vision for Winter Park Village, transforming the shopping center into an incredible modern village environment. Unique zones offer visitors an array of experiences, from playful and energetic outdoor spaces to sophisticated and stylish visual installations.
The Architectural vocabulary is an opportunity to reinforce the vision for the new Winter Park Village. The Regal Theater will be the terminus anchor. The reshaping of the roof form and massing is to support rethinking how the space in front of the theater will be used in a new way that creates a more relevant space that contributes to a greater sense of community. By opening up adjacent spaces into the open air foyer of the theater, we can increase the value of these spaces, reinvent unused “dead” space, and coax visitors to linger longer before or after the show.
Parklets and a main linear park lawn create an oasis that breaks up our current sea of parking lot pavement and inspires new destinations for visitors as they park and stroll through the village. While patrons wait for their reservations at neighboring restaurants they can linger longer and extend their experience in the Village thanks to the additional retailers based in these new outdoor spaces.
