De Barones: Indoor shopping centre in Breda
De Barones, the beating heart of Breda, underwent a major refurbishment in 2016 and 2017 to the design of Rijnboutt. From a relatively introvert shopping centre, it has been transformed into an open, inviting shopping street, interwoven with the historic city centre. Large retail units, high facades, lots of glass, inviting entrances; the interventions reinforce the original allure and appeal of the Barones to both tenants and consumers. The Barones offers a nice brand mix of shops from both large national chains and local entrepreneurs, with a stylish, award-winning coffee bar in the heart of the centre as a resting point.
