Santa Monica Place
Transformative retail renovation
The new Santa Monica Place changes an obsolete, enclosed, multi-level mall into a dynamic urban heart that celebrates the cultural and geographic openness that makes Santa Monica a great place to live, work, play and visit. Commissioned by Macerich to renovate the outdated mall, JERDE set out to create a vibrant and intimate public setting rather than a shopping center.
