Rios Clementi Hale Studios and Westfield Corporation embarked on a highly collaborative design process in the renovation of Westfield Century City, creating a contemporary urban shopping center that reflects the mall's sophisticated customer base. Westfield Century City now captures the authentic modern aesthetic of Southern California with a design language that celebrates the indoor/outdoor lifestyle, creates viable public spaces, and introduces a vibrant mix of uses that transforms this 1960s mall into an integrated center for the community.

The renovation created a new second level with an indoor-outdoor Dining Terrace. The Dining
Terrace spills casually into the outdoors, acting as a central gathering and eating area. It offers a refined dining experience not usually provided in shopping malls by employing modern furnishings and planters, outdoor lounge areas interspersed with tables, and custom dishes designed by notNeutral.

A graciously landscaped Boulevard entry creates enhanced visibility and provides direct access for cars and pedestrians. Four “Garden Streets” connect pedestrians diagonally through the site to the City. These “streets” also provide visibility and access to the new upper level alfresco dining terrace.
