Holistic design, seamless integration

The Project

The holistic design combines both office and mall to integrate seamlessly with the surroundings. Its naturally ventilated fine grain retail network is filled with a delightful mix of public plazas, sky bridges, art trails, vertical green walls and lined with palm trees, for a vibrant, yet idyllic feel.

Like a conduit, it connects and draws visitors in

The Challenge

A major challenge addressed was making the naturally ventilated retail network comfortable for shoppers. A blend of passive and active designs, from the use of wind corridors and water features, to vertical planting and lush landscaping show the possibility of a new kind of retail typology in the tropical climate.
