Mihrab – a new shopping area in De Bazaar, The Netherlands

De Bazaar, located in The Netherlands, is the biggest indoor market of Europe. It was built 35 years ago and 2 million people visit De Bazaar every year. The market size is 75000 m² and consists of 700 shops, 300 market stalls and vendors with 50 different nationalities. De Bazaar has a variety of market areas, ranging from the Eastern market to the Black market.

Designed by Liong Lie Architects, Mihrab is a shopping area inspired by the kaleidoscopic folklore of the East, where you can buy exotic food as well as non-food products from countries like Iran, India and Afghanistan.

To enhance this rich exotic experience the Mihrab is designed with a modern exotic twist: there’s a 1600 m² gold coloured ceiling, many arches, colourful pathways with lively patterns and a fountain with gold coloured tiles that sparkles in the centre of the Mihrab market – a central resting point for the weary shopper.
