Paagman bookshop opened its doors in 2020 at a 750 m2 hotspot in the Westfield Mall of the Netherlands in Leidschendam. The BREEAM very good labelled retail shop fits nicely into the high quality shopping mall.
The shop is not only covered with books but there are many stories to discover behind the immense steelwork facade.
We were not only responsible for the design of the 100 m2 shopfront which is handmade out of steelwork elements but we where in the picture from the first steps to be taken and managed the project through all tender and permissions procedures and construction phases until the opening.
Winner of the B&B Maatwerk Award 2020.
