Respect, relevance and ambition are the foundations on which we build our architectural response. To be efficient, a project needs a methodology capable of acutely investigating on the place's history, flows, uses, legends and identity. The proposal must also take on board all the economic, technical and sociological parameters in order to bring a comprehensive answer, a refined solution that is able to implement the city over the city. Finally, it is a goal, a projection over time of the future uses by the public, for an evolving programme which has no set dates and must be questioned on a regular basis. We tackles urban planning projects with empathy, modesty and strong beliefs, with distinct architectural expressions, functionalities to decompartmentalize, amenities to hybridize and individualities to cross-breed. Our urban reorientations are all the expression of one single and simple ambition: making places livelier and richer by enabling everyone to express with pride where he/she is coming from and heading to. Designing a shopping and leisure centre requires first and foremost a clear understanding of the history, sociology and dynamics of the place where it will be located. It also means putting it into perspective with the site's future users. Indeed, shopping and leisure centres are more and more combined with housing and office programmes. We have to work as upstream as possible from the project by positioning it not as a mere shopping centre, but rather as an authentic urban attractiveness hub, a destination per se. This fertile choice contributes to the integration of the ever faster evolution of the ways of life. Lastly, it favours the emergence of new architectural ideas that benefit to the comfort and well-being of the end user, i.e. the client/customer.
当我们设计一个建筑时，要尊重这个项目，注意其相关性，还要有所追求， 这是我们进行建筑设计的基础。为了使项目更高效，需要采用某些方法，要对 该建筑场址的历史背景、项目资金、建筑用途、传奇典故以及建筑类别进行详 细的调查。设计时必须要考虑经济、技术、社会等各个方面的因素，以便制订 一个全面而精确的方案，使城市实现自我超越。正在进行的项目，目标是建成 一个跨时空的建筑，可以在未来供公众使用。项目的进程没有时间限制，且需 要定期进行改造完善。 在处理城市规划项目时，我们投入情感，以谦逊、稳重的态度和坚定的 信念，通过独特的建筑表达方式，对功能进行统一，对各种设施进行整合，并 将个体特征融入其中。 我们对城市的重新定位，完全体现了一种纯粹、简单的追求，即：使每 个人在谈及他们来自哪里、将去何方时，都能倍感自豪，从而令每个地方都更 有活力、更加富饶。 设计一个购物中心或娱乐中心首要的也是最重要的，就是清楚地了解建 筑场址的历史、社会环境和发展动向，也就是说从建筑未来的使用者方面进行 考虑。的确，购物、娱乐中心与住宅、办公楼建筑相结合的项目越来越多。 我们必须在项目中力争上游，对建筑的定位不仅仅是一个购物中心，还 是真正意义上的城市魅力的焦点，这是我们的终极目标。 如今，生活方式的发展空前迅速。多种多样的选择方案使得它们之间相 互融合。最终，令人欣慰的是出现了新型的建筑设计理念，保证最终使用者即 客户舒适、幸福。

Seeking a superior functional facility together with a vast park blooming with green, the architects have created a landmark appropriate for the future vision of the exclusive residential district of Hongqiao Area. The form evokes a gently streaming enormous waterfall. From midair the small, delicate flow undulate in tranquility, gently billowing outwards at the bottom. It is a single continuous movement of which the flow expands and gradually results in a fertile cataract, falling onto the bedrock. Thus this building, in contrast to the masculine, geometric-linear urban structure of the surroundings, gives feminine gracefulness and softness, emphasizing the affinity with the nature in the park in front. Continued from top to bottom is the vertical fin, resembling a spray of water. The reflection of these fins, change of the weather, path of the sun, and the position where people walk, brings the whole building in constant transition, making it breathe. The flow and movement of the vertical fins emerge in the night sky, as it illuminates at night. Compared to the faĂ§ade which has a vertical curved surface, the interior of the underlying cataract has four uniquely curved loops, surrounding the center atrium creating a space which overlaps horizontally. A skin that looks like a waterfall switch to glass at the top of the atrium, turning it into a top lighting which lavishly absorbs the natural light. Animating this environment facing the atrium is an event space which makes seasonal events possible and an â€œimage fallâ€? in which the back side of the elevator is used.

Plaza Singapore is a newly renovated and extended retail destination located centrally in Singapore in the famous Orchard Road shopping district. A key driver for the design was the creative conversion and amalgamation of three floors of prime commercial office space from two separate towers into a single unified retail space. Seamlessly integrated with the existing Dhoby Ghaut MRT interchange beneath, the new scheme enhances public realm provisions and pedestrian connectivity in the area. Key to the design was the creation of a dynamic new façade wrapping around the existing mall and office towers, seamlessly bringing together the previously discrete elements. The elegant and fluid ribbon shaped façade was inspired by the movement and flow of the historic Stamford Canal in the area and revitalized an existing underused plaza through the creation of several large canopies and enhanced active frontage. The interior of the scheme benefited from the addition of two large atria spaces between the existing towers which allow large amounts of natural daylight into the lower floors and to the MRT station beneath the development. In-keeping with the façade design, the interior design of the development saw a focus on dynamic forms, flowing patterns and resulted in a unique retail environment unrecognizable from its previous office use.

The Galleria on Al Maryah Island is a 130 unit, 33,000 m² GLA premium retail and dining destination, sitting on the spectacular waterfront with stunning views across the new promenade. The development offers a contemporary and relaxed consumer experience, set in the grounds of the opulent Sowwah Square scheme. Inspiration for design has emanated from the exclusive and unique brands that occupy the centre, delivering a sophisticated prime retail location. The Galleria boasts one of the highest concentrations of luxury brands in MENA, including Burberry, Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry and Prada. The Great Room houses an impressive collection of labels, which are displayed in impressive double height shop fronts, enclosed by a glass skylight. The project is the vision of Gulf Related and Mubadala Real Estate & Infrastructure (MREI), who have developed Abu Dhabi’s Al Maryah Island. The site incorporates the city’s new Exchange building, hotels, shopping and leisure facilities.

The old mall was formed by separate buildings with their entrances faced to an oversized court yard. The new building offers a recognizable face towards the main road with a clear entrance. Home & Living Mall Ekkersrijt presents itself as a destination on itself, instead of separate shoeboxes. The main shape consists of “randomly” laser cut aluminium cassettes that are mounted on a red background. The pattern continues past the edge of the cassette. This makes that the façade looks like a continuous skin, instead of separate plating. Parking is fun! Using ramps, which are cut out in the façade, cars reach the parking roof. The movement of cars in the façade shows that it is possible to park on the roof but also deliver an entertaining spectacle for the people who walk by. 17 curved steel columns reach up to 25 meters in the sky, forming an attractive landmark to be seen from a large distance. These columns form the construction of a new central building that is placed on the former inner square. A central axis on the parking roof leads to two bridges that cross to the central building. From here visitors descend to the stores on the first floor. Because most visitors enter the complex from the parking roof, first floor-tenants profit from the same traffic as ground floor tenants do. This architecture also creates an overall vibrant atmosphere, not only at eye-level. For the roof of the ground floor entrance a special construction is made. The full construction with large steel tie rods is kept visible and the span runs up to 35 meters. Diamond-shaped surfaces of the steel structure are filled with concrete elements with round glass bricks. These give a beautiful experience of daylight and shades from the parking cars. Other areas are filled with a white, acoustic stretch ceiling.

Aeroville, shopping and entertainment center, inspired by the imagination of the voyage will be the “city center” of the previously untraceable, vast zone. With fragmented blocks, it is an open space in which the airport inoculated its cosmopolitan dimension of travel and the city, this of flux and plural activity. The airport is the iconic space of a new migratory global culture, transforming Aeroville into a metaphor of the journey joining this global usability. The site of Aeroville is at the edge of the airport zone at the extremities of the paths of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle 2. This plot of 11 hectares in the heart of the freight zone is large enough to contain terminals 2E and 2F, Le Forum des Halles, or part of the Marais district of Paris. The Aeroville mall is designed in the manner of a city rail system, making a clear distinction between the public space and the built environment. The commercial program around the interior streets is fragmented into blocks of varying heights and dimensions referring to the islands of the city. The project is in contrast with the usual proportions of this type of program, flat and uniform, and consistent with its function as a participant to travel and escape. The opening of the building and its character, non-generic and non-repetitive, form a space devoted to commerce, a public form that promotes exchanges and strolls. The architectural design presents the originality of this type of development solely on a single level of retail around a covered street in the form of the number eight, along which are arranged the program components. This inner street level is accessed from rue des Buissons, facing the bus stop and offices of the freight area. Parking area is hidden under and on street level. The project has taken part of the sloping site, and the north entrance to the parking is on the natural terrain, providing natural light and ventilation to the parking lot. The parking for staff and the cinema are located in the center. The surroundings are freed from vehicles and are vegetated allowing the reconstitution of an ecosystem.
