Where to start? Well, Villa Walala might be the best way to start the festival week. We can already see your confused faces and read in your eyes “What is Villa Walala?" Villa Walala is a multicoloured and astonishing architectural landscape located in Exchange Square in Liverpool Street.

The creation is made from vinyl, sealed PVC and nylon to be named; it is covered by digitally printed patterns. The colourful castle like construction is created by Camille Walala who believes in positivity and has decided to illuminate and bring some joy and positivity to this business area.

Villa Walala is created in partnership with British Land. If you want to admire and explore this exuberant, playful and architectural landscape go to: 

Exchange Square, 100 Liverpool Street LONDON and enjoy the view.
