Kiosks range from little stalls selling goods to great
dining experiences that sit within the Centre environment.
Every aspect of the kiosk is viewed from all

so height restrictions and lean vertical structures are
essential.
Consider views from above and sight lines
to surrounding retailers.

and 800mm width.
Counter heights are restricted to 900mm with
occasional screens or displays restricted to 1400mm.
High quality materials with Class 0 spread
of flame ratings.
Integrated illumination is essential and all
electrical feeds are to be concealed.
Keep it clean.
Signage
All signage is to be integrated with the kiosk design.
Use three-dimensional illuminated individual letters.
Keep to energy-efficient LED illumination.
Do not apply stick-on promotional signage
to kiosk surround; integrate it.
Use vertical totems not horizontal bands.
