FRIIS Aalborg City Centre Location:

Aalborg, Denmark

Designer:

C. F. Møller Architects

Photographer:

Helene Hoyer, Steen & Strm

Completion date: 2010

The shopping centre, which combines new property and a renovation of the former Magasin department store, covers a total area of 60,000 sq m. The shops are located at street level and on the first floor. Central Aalborg was previously divided by the traffic along Nytorv, but the FRIIS shopping centre now binds the city together. The shopping centre has four main entrances: two main entrances connect to the city's main street, Nytorv. One main entrance connects the Centre to the pedestrian shopping street of Nørregade, which forms the northerly part of Aalborg's shopping street network, and another main entrance links the Centre to Aalborg's newly-refurbished waterfront. The building unites its many different functions with a white stucco façade and striking glass panels in structural glazing, but the façade also reflects its diversity, just as it reflects the diverse structure of the surrounding city – from the large-scale open areas towards the harbour to the denser, more intimate shopping streets. This is achieved through alternating motifs, including window bays in various designs, perforated steel plates in front of coloured façade fields in different varieties, variations in window formats and combinations of materials, etc.

The centre is organised around a natural flow from north to south. Main retail anchors are located at the south entrance, around the Diamond Plaza. This entrance attracts people from the residential areas located at this end of the centre. At the north end is Cervantes Plaza, a large double-height space leading into the park, where the leisure areas, food court and entrance to the cinema are located. It opens directly onto the park and the transparent walls create an important interior-exterior link. A distinctive diamond-shaped glazed roof-light filters light from the park and creates a stunning centre piece for the mall. Historical references have been woven into the design of the exterior. The Roman foundations of the city and the Castilian University from the sixteenth century on, are represented by archaeological strata which give shape and form to the elevations.

Atrio Location:

Frankfurt, Germany

Designer: ATP

Photographer:

Thomas Jantscher

Completion date: 2007

Atrio is in many respects – conceptually as well as architecturally – no conventional shopping centre. On the one hand, one is simply overwhelmed by the scale of the over 100,000-square-metre stand-alone building which graces the southern access to the city of Villach. The partly raised building greets the visitor like a red and silver sculpture. "A Trio" is on the other hand the architectural programme of the building – a shopping centre which seeks to draw together three regions. The fluid entrance zone replaces no clear border between outside and inside. The overdimensioned red entrance frame dominates virtually the entire south façade; it highlights both main façade and entrance like an original piece of origami while creating a covered forecourt which is conceived as an open stage for events. The red 15 m wide canopy sculpture is formed out of steel trusswork. The Atrio can be entered from three circulation cores and on three levels: “The open-air stage” at the main entrance acts as a forum and open communication-platform during the day. The notion of the three regions is also symbolised by a glass pyramid, a crystal which draws daylight deep down into the parking levels. The underground car park is continually in contact with the centre: the views afforded by openings in the slab give clients the feeling of standing in the plaza before they have left the parking. The feeling of being underground is also reduced by the lifting of the main building and the very

gentle access to the basement parking. Clients who park on the parking deck at second floor level are oriented by a series of coloured aluminium poles. The flat volume of the Atrio is divided into a classic INTERSPAR supermarket and a Shopping Mile focused on the central square with the blue tower in its midst. Due to its scale, the Plaza cannot be compared with such spaces in conventional malls. In an area of 50 m x 60 m an almost square glazed Atrium was created which houses all those activities – buying, eating, playing, communicating and loitering – which combine to create a new urban square for Villach. In order to intensify this "street-like" feeling, the architect used various granites as floor finishes at ground floor level whereas the upper floor is finished in an elegant Gailtaler marble.

Namba Parks Location:

Osaka, Japan

Designer:

The Jerde Partnership

Hiroyuki Kawano

Completion date: 2007

24 - 25

Namba Parks, a vibrant lifestyle centre, inserts a much-needed natural amenity into Osaka's dense city core. Namba Parks generously weaves rich landscaping and other natural elements with specialty retail, entertainment and dining, creating a new unique place that celebrates the interaction of people, culture and recreation. Located adjacent to Namba Train Station, the first stop on the new line connecting the city to Kansai Airport, Namba Parks is a key gateway project for Osaka that will redefine the city’s identity and urban experience. Many Jerde projects are inspired by the power of nature as both a regenerative force and a universally understood element that connects old and new, East and West. In Namba Parks, Jerde conceived of nature as a form of urban intervention and designed Namba Parks as a natural amenity that offers relief from the hard, bustling city – and creates a new experience for Osaka. The project's interior is a man-made canyon. Originally conceived of by the client as a simple concrete passageway to connect the north and south parcels of the project site, Jerde proposed a canyon instead. Constructed from band of coloured stone, the canyon reinforces the project’s connection with nature while forming the primary circulation pattern. This path is carefully sculptured to produce a sense of mystery and create a variety of coves, caves, valleys and other exploratory spaces.

At selected locations, varying with each level, direct access from the canyon is provided to outdoor terraces located on the park plane. Glass bridges connect the two sides of the canyon, by night becoming arcing tubes of light. All vertical spaces are sky-lit from the park above. Namba Parks forms a dramatic new identity for the city. Alongside a 30-storey office tower and 46-storey residential tower, the project features a new lifestyle commercial centre with a rooftop that crosses the multiple blocks while gradually ascending eight levels from the streets of the city. The sloping nature of the park serves as a green and highly visible oasis in a city where nature is sparse. By connecting to the street, the sloping park plane will draw people up and into the project among groves of trees, green spaces, water features and outdoor terraces, where they can dine, read, socialise, or simply taking in views of the city. Namba Park’s retail and entertainment venues are accessed through a “figure 8” circulation path that ascends through the canyon interior up the sloped park plane. A series of plazas,

each with a water feature or event, create a sequential path of discovery. At the centre of the project is the grand plaza, a three-storey tactile and organic space embellished with greenery, foliage and water to rejuvenate the spirit.

The 226,600-square-metre LaLaPort Shopping Centre is located in the heart of Yokohama near the Daisan Keihin Highway and Yokohama’s Kamoi station. The design features powerful, intersecting circular shapes and dramatic wave forms to the principle building elevations. LaLaport TOKYO-BAY is home to 540 stores, with 8,200 parking spaces. Committed to further development, it aims to be one of the largest shopping centres in Japan, adapting to ever-changing trends and needs and providing new experiences for its customers. A dramatic circular external entry space, the Central Court, is surrounded by overlooking balconies, tenancies and the Firest Level Food Court, and features freestanding restaurants, water features, richly landscaped garden areas and a performance stage. The interior of LaLaPort is light and light-filled, clean and minimalist. Shopfronts are wide and welcoming, with the malls characterised by gracefully shaped vaulted skylight forms of curved timber blades and panels. The rich landscape quality that characterises the LaLaPort brand is extended from the exterior into the heart of the project, the Central Node.

Located in the central district of Hong Kong, The Landmark is one of the premier luxury retail centres in Asia. In order to maintain its competitive edge, the complex is regularly updated to ensure that its design and amenities reflect the pervading retail culture. Phase I of the renovation involved the complete recladding of the original 1970s’ building and the upgrading of internal finishes with French limestone and new storefronts and entrances. Additional efforts included a sky lighted atrium roof and an interior fountain. Phase II encompasses several components: the addition of York House, a 23-storey, 115,000-square-foot (10,684-square-metre) office/retail tower at the corner of Ice House Street; the renovation and expansion of the façade along Queen’s Road Central, including the centre’s new atrium entrance, additional retail space and restaurants in the new and the existing atria; a boutique hotel (the Mandarin Landmark) and spa in the lower portion of Edinburgh Tower; double-height storefronts that are part of the flagship retail concept, and a Harvey Nichols department store and a Louis Vuitton superstore on Pedder Street. A suspended, three-storey wall of folded vertical glass panels envelopes the new retail podium along Queen’s Road Central, unifying the complex’s disparate elements. Conceived as a diaphanous veil, the zigzag glass screen alternately obscures and reveals the retail environment, connecting the interior activity to

the streets of Central. The York House office tower located atop the extended retail podium floats two storeys above the new atrium entrance and rooftop garden. As a counterpoint to the podium, the tower’s high-performance glass façade is stretched out into a single plane, an effect created by cantilevering the façade 1.5 metres beyond the floor plate at each end. A high-profile destination accessible from Hong Kong’s mass transit system and airport, the renovated and expanded Landmark engages and enhances its Central locale by creating an integrated, 24-hour lifestyle, work, and leisure environment.

Located at one of Jakarta's busiest intersections, the development comprises a 2 million-squarefoot retail centre, a 50-story office tower and a 54-storey residential tower, as well as an additional retail, cinema and ballroom building on an adjacent site connected with a bridge. The design team was challenged to create a scheme that would link the different uses and highlight their respective features. The retail centre connects to the hotel and features clear routes of circulation that wind through thematic districts; details like coffered ceilings and sleek lines express a range of design styles, from ornate and historic to streamlined and contemporary. Slated to become the icon in the Indonesian retail scene, Grand Indonesia Shopping Town delivers the ultimate, trend-setting shopping, dining, and entertainment experience spread out over more than 250,000 square metres in eight levels. The shopping Town consists of 2 blocks linked by a multilevel bridge and zoned into 3 specialised districts to cater to individuals needs.

An edge-of-town shopping centre of some 30,000-square-metre for the town of Cassino, previously poorly served in retail terms. A design to bring the elevation to life especially at night was inspired by the idea of fast moving traffic headlights and makes a dynamic impression on the passer-by. Horizontal aluminum profiles running along the elevations are dramatically lit. The interior in contrast is cool and restrained with a paving layout and ceiling design inspired by computer circuit boards. Natural lighting is brought into the interior via dramatic mesh boxes which also serve as air-conditioning and smoke-extraction ducts. The shops echo the simplicity of the interior with all signs being contained within the shop fronts themselves.

Kanyon is a diverse mix of residences, offices, retail stores, entertainment facilities and public spaces surrounded by landscaped common gardens in the centre of the city, Levent, Istanbul. Interior streets encircled by courtyards associate all buildings and areas that cause to feel like you are in a compact city. Soft curves of each building, location of spaces and their connection arcs create an elegant flow; the verdant route provides a feeling of profundity, freedom and choice. Rather then a closed shopping centre, an open, natural street-shopping atmosphere is complemented on 40,000 sqm. A special engineering technique is used for the first time in the world: an air circulation system ventilates the open areas of the canyon-like mall and creates an invisible "thermostatic shield", making it possible for visitors to enjoy open-air shopping regardless of seasons. Daring and outstanding form of the complex is supported by the use of natural stones and special building materials. Light earthtone stone and painted copper metal belts are the main constituents of the façade. The architectural design aims to engage the natural light and cityscape inside the building where at the southern front sun screening is provided. In terms of functions, Kanyon is a hybrid complex, which adds modern values to the city life, sets new trends and grants a city square and a green, active pedestrian zone in the heart of the city.

ION Orchard Location: Singapore

Designer:

Completion date: 2009

Size/Area:

125,000 sqm

60 - 61

The design for ION Orchard project drew inspiration from the site’s antecedents as an orchard. The plan of this mixed-use scheme makes direct reference to the contours and lines of fruit and nuts. Meanwhile, the retail canopy draws on the metaphors of "skin'', "canopies of trees", "foliage" and "fruit and peels", and the iconic tower design is based on the concept of "roots and shoots" – to celebrate the site, its history and its future. Benoy designed a fully three-dimensional free form curvilinear glass and metal façade to wrap around the retail component of the scheme, creating highly visible shop frontage. The interlocking pattern of undulating shapes was inspired by the complex patterns and textures found in nature. The design includes a large low-resolution "seed façade" and a smaller high-resolution LED façade. Crowning the events space, the media wall will create a new stage for public video screenings and advertisements. A double curved glass, fully-transparent Waterdrop has also been designed as an iconic MRT station entrance to the events space. The entire podium monocoque façade will be fitted with LEDs at each nodal point at about 1.50m centre to illuminate the podium at night. Breaking new design ground, Benoy has introduced Asia’s first pure monocoque façade and canopy structure. The undulating glass and perforated metal structure will be both practical and visually dynamic, providing cover

to the public space and attracting pedestrians to the retail core. Benoy endeavours to forge strong links between the retail centre and its surroundings – existing city networks, public transport, streets and neighbouring buildings to create a dynamic place that pulls in visitors. Within each scheme, horizontal and vertical pedestrian routes are carefully planned. A curvilinear art gallery will be an important new cultural space for the area. This venue will be integrated with retail and will break down barriers between interior and exterior space, a figurative gesture that will physically take culture closer to the public realm. This scheme represents a significant expansion of Singapore’s public sphere, providing both internal and external areas to be enjoyed by all. At the heart of the development sits a new 3,000 sqm public square. This new urban space will be a logical focal point for both large and small events – from festivals and shows to meetings and exhibitions.

Completion date: 2008

66 - 67

Changwon City 7 Mall was envisioned as a mixed-use complex that combines retail and entertainment along with a hotel, offices, and office-tel living units. To create a new urban identity and symbol of civic pride for the city of Changwon, Jerde designed the project's fivelevel retail and entertainment base with a focus on nature that connects its districts, links it to surrounding uses and reflects the city's special character. Organic forms, vibrant open spaces, water, and landscaping are blended to create the project's identity. Architecturally, The City 7 Mall's base is composed of a dynamic collection of organic forms that break the building mass down into smaller, sculptural pieces. Using the client's seven urban concepts as inspiration, Jerde created a series of districts within the project that serve the people on many levels — from entertainment and relaxation to living and shopping. The project's three districts feature plazas that are represented by the natural elements of sky, water and earth. Each district uses different colours and materials to establish a sense of place, balance the active and quite spaces, and encourage exploration through the project. Above the architecture is a large rooftop park that spans the tops of three buildings. Designed to create a unique experience within Changwon, the park, which is located 20 metres above grade, features a series of open spaces including a performance stage,

topiary garden, sculptural garden, exercise court, and a central water feature that will form an outdoor ice skating rink in the winter. It will be easily accessed by residents from the neighbouring communities, hotel guests, convention goers, and visitors. Water is a basic design feature that physically unifies the project. The City 7 Mall’s main element is a canal that animates the project as it links its different areas. From its origin in the rooftop park, above the water district, water travels through canals and waterfalls as it makes its way down through the restaurants and shops to the hotel and convention centre. At the lower levels, water takes a variety of forms, from a rapid stream to placid reflective areas to interactive fountains, to create a number of experiences. Landscaping, with plants featuring a vivid colour palette and variety of fragrances, ties the City 7 Mall together from the richly planted canal and throughout its many districts. Trees placed around the perimeter of the project help visually establish the City 7 Mall as the new heart of the surrounding district, while enhancing the pedestrian environment of the overall area.

Completion date: 2008

Size/Area:

40,000 sqm.

Investor: Gaw Capital/Gateway China FundⅠ Asset Management: GCP Retail Management

72 - 73

Plaza 353 is located on the pedestrianised Nanjing East Road – Shanghai’s favourite shopping street. The original building was designed in a fashionable art deco style of the day, embellished with Bauhaus, art nouveau and renaissance influences by Architect Mr. Zhuang Jun in 1932. It has now been transformed into this through urban regeneration to retain the historic cultural value and is a successful example of multi storey urban regeneration in Shanghai and China. Through its planning, function, quality tenants and distinct mix of historic and modern design elements, it contributes positively to the reestablishment of the Nanjing East Road precinct as the premiere retail and entertainment district in China and an international destination for travellers to the City. The centrepiece of the plaza atrium is an eyecatching broadcasting studio in a glass capsule suspended in the atrium on the third floor. Inside the strobe-lit "fish bowl", DJs can be seen mixing up Plaza 353’s music channel, which plays throughout the building with different programms at different hours. The music studio entertains customers while they shop, eat & chill-out, and echoes the interaction and realtime creation craved by China's new shopping generation. Levels one to three of Plaza 353 feature "City Vogue" fashions by trend-setting global brands. Levels four and five are dedicated to the "Urban Lifestyle", saluting the coolest new Street

Fashion and Urban Sporty trends in town. Level four showcases original street fashions, while level five gathers outdoors and sports themed shops. Level five also houses 353 Club, designed as a cool urban destination for young and trendy shoppers and browsers to meet and hang out. The Club also provides digital games, free internet browsing and functional spaces for informal gatherings. Level six and seven of Plaza 353 are reserved for cool dining and mega-store that carries the latest digital and personal electric appliance. There are three restaurants and 600-seat food loft Canteen, with a mix 'n' match fusion of international flavours. Free Wi-fi is beamed throughout the plaza, so shoppers can always stay connected, and an interactive web portal and monthly trends magazine will enhance exchanges between Plaza 353 and its customer base. Plaza 353 offers ongoing programme of events, both in the mall and online. These include brand launches and guest appearances by visiting celebrities and artists, plus joint

promotions with major international brands such as Tissot and Universal Music. Also scheduled are participatory activities, such as Star Search for a Plaza 353 web movie. The redevelopment of the historic Plaza 353 restores the status of this landmark building with a lively and modern-retro design urban concept mall. Combining the best of new-age technology and cutting-edge retail design, Plaza 353 is the one-stop-centre for urban hipsters to shop, dine and hang out with friends.

78 - 79

Zlote Tarasy is a landmark destination for Warsaw’s newest high-rise district, offering yearround shopping, leisure and social opportunities for the residents and visitors to the city. Zlote Tarasy takes the form of a below-grade pocket park that opens to a lively, retail and entertainment plaza. Designed as an extension of the park, the plaza is enclosed by an innovative glass roof with an undulating surface inspired by the tree canopies crowning the city’s historic parks. Spanning 120 metres with individual spans of more than 30 metres, the thin glass roof creates the feeling of being outdoors while providing weather protection during the winter cold. Surrounding the interior plaza, a three-level retail and entertainment centre is organised in terraces, as suggested by the name Zlote Tarasy, which means “golden terraces”. The terraces, which contain local and international retailers, restaurants and a multiplex cinema, overlook the interior courtyard and open-air park. Mid- and high-rise towers rising above the three-level retail and entertainment centre will house office space. Designed as a connector to weave central Warsaw’s urban fabric back together, Zlote Tarasy includes an interior circulation path that connects to the city’s existing pedestrian patterns, linking to the Warszawa Centralna train station on the south with pocket parks and the historic city centre on the north. Additional entrances around the perimeter of

K:fem Department Store Location:

Designer:

Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Completion date: 2008

84 - 85

Vällingby was in need of new blood, and the pièce de résistance of the renewal would be a new department store. Red as a lacquer box, the construction stands as a precious object by the new entrance of the centre. With layers on layers, a sense of depth is transmitted in the façade. The milky glass gets increasingly see-through as the white dots vanish towards top and exposes the red skin behind, just like a cool and thin cloth on a warm body. The building is an image of the content. It is a home for the factionists, who shall be caught like flies by light. No random additions were to disturb the tailored design. Shiny white letters in the red sky is the only exposure of the companies inside. The only detached department is the black box in the east end. As the complex continues the urban pattern from the 1950's, a pedestrian street cuts through the site and divides one solo retailer from the large department store. The little black is a contrast to the grand evening dress. The complex is erected on top of the subway tracks, a site that did not exist when the project started. The main entrance is thereby facing the main access road, and the cutting edge 14-metre canopy works as a logotype for the new suburban centre. Vällingby has always been a symbol.

If the exterior is dressed in a red gown and white lace, the interior shows the fancy underwear. The semitransparent theme continues. A pendant ceiling transmits a diffuse light, and the white pattern on the balustrades evaporates like mist in the morning. The large opening in the core of the building opens up toward the light. To ascend the space shall be a travel to the light – as an aeroplane rising through the clouds. The scheme for Vällingby was simple and straightforward. Orthogonal blocks with shops on a large horizontal base, are decorated with circular pattern in paving stones and fountains. These elements are all present in the plan and detailing of the new building as well. Sadly, few of the buildings got the attention originally intended. With the refurbishment of the entire area and the erection of the fashion department store K:fem, some of the original ideas have been developed further, and the new ideas adapted to the venue. It is sensitive, but most of all sensual.

The firm is in charge of the interior design of all the communal spaces in this â‚Ź30 million shopping centre. The client's brief was to evoke the grandeur of classical or Gothic architecture in a thoroughly modern idiom. There are two levels of retail with arching barrel vaults with natural lighting through slots between the dramatic buttresses. The natural palette of materials includes timber in the vaulting and the handrails on the glass balustrades together with variously-coloured marble flooring. The lifts are contained within glass structures which echo the form of the vaulting.

Business centre in Saint-Etienne Location:

Ilôt Grüner – Zac Châteaucreux Saint-Etienne

Designer:

MANUELLE GAUTRAND

Completion date: 2009

96 - 97

The site is a vital liaison point between the centre of Saint-Etienne and the new Chateaucreux neighbourhood, to which it forms a major entranceway. It also constitutes a pole grouping several government bodies that will set up there : Regional Development Authority, Tax Services, Epora, Saint-Etienne Métropole, and so on. Service and leisure facilities will also be part of the mix: shared corporate restaurant, café, tourism bureau for the metropiltan area. The idea is to develop a long built "continuum" on the site to interact with adjacent streets. A linear construction that rears up and unfolds but also hugs the ground line to form a low accessible building – one that opens spacious courts and lifts bold overhangs. Each of its large bays serves an access route: the main portal opens to the concourse on avenue Grüner, which draws pedestrians into the project in a sliding movement. A high ceiling shelters and magnifies this entranceway, which is the finest and largest of three.The other two large "ports" open the project to the streets that irrigate the lot, interconnecting pedestrian itineraries in the area. Their desire for continuity in construction does not simply reflect the idea of building a legible and unitary urban landmark, it also provides the flexibility that the project needs. In fact, the principle behind this continuum is to imagine a set of "communicating parts" that enable the user-administrations to merge into a whole, one and all, and to evolve according to their needs

in harmony with those of other tenants. The absence of breaks in surfaces will ensure that things remain open-ended, with the possibility of extending or reducing space. The project is like a large "Aztec serpent" rising on the lot. Its body has three identical outer faces, and an underside that is different: a skin of silvery transparent scales and a bright yellow "throat", shiny and opaque. This dual treatment of surfaces obeys a simple logic shared throughout, which aims at expressing clarity in folds. Depending on these movements, the yellow underside is either a floating canopy or an interior vertical wall, accompanying internal pedestrian movements with its rich luminous presence. The nearness of so much gorgeous yellow brightens up pavements and glazed elevations, casting golden washes over them like sunlight…This is a project that is about bringing together yellow and grey, silver and gold.

The main design criterion of the building, which is located in the residential district of Ankara, is to create a community centre and an urban attraction centre that would reply to the social and commercial needs of the residents. Moreover, the site is located in a region defined as green area by the municipality. As an outcome, the building is aimed to integrate with the existing green area with the landscape project. The building is planned as five floors composed of two basement floors including D.I.Y. store and indoor parking and three floors comprised of hypermarket, shops, restaurants and food court. The places which have interaction with the exterior are designed as restaurants and cafĂŠs; while the hypermarket and shops are located at the rear area. The food court area is aimed to integrate with exterior by the open terrace on the third floor. The interior of the building is dominated by a huge elliptical skylight. One of the main aims of the design is to obtain spatial continuity horizontally and vertically by the open galleries. The other urban design criteria are to obtain most efficient solutions for pedestrian, vehicle and city connections to the centre and its environment. Design criteria in architectural scale are to utilise maximum sunlight, wellplanned service and customer circulation, create spacious interior space and associate the location of the retail units in the building in an efficient way.

A third entrance is planned on the second basement floor from the lower level where the DIY store is located. In addition, vehicle entrances to the car park are obtained from different levels as a result of the land plot’s elevation. The urban activity area on the first basement floor which is aimed to be integrated with the green area is created by the evaluation of the existing level difference of the land.

The mall has four main entrances, one on the ground floor from "Democracy Square", two on the first floor and the last one on the second floor. The entrances and exits for the closed car park will be made on the side of "Democracy Square", open car park entrance and exits will be positioned on the south of the building, where the food court is located. The Face Veneer is a colour combination of the materials of glass, metal, bricks and stones. The interior design is completion of the outside, and can be defined as "building in building". Entrance from "Democracy Square" confronts us with the main ambitious environment placed under wide eaves, the courtyard and the square, which is directly calling people with its charming scene. It is possible to see the same effect on the backside façade on the south, which has a high glass entrance. This area is stepped with the combination of green water and stone like "Pamukkale" view and connects with the food court. The other two entrances are pretty noticeable placed like art sculptures.

The complex has a very modern style incorporating a number of leisure and entertainment facilities as well as conventional shopping centre tenants. It is fully leased to both Turkish and international brands. On the entertainment front the centre includes a multi-screen movie theatre, bowling alley and fitness centre. As part of the main concept, the designers used black to exaggerate the contours of the building and give it a sense of elegance and made this mega object appear smaller and monoblock. Black represents nobility, sensitiveness, night, secrecy, absence and infinity. The curved horizontal lines of the building, bring a sense of flow and dynamism. By using reflective surfaces on the faรงade the building appears lighter and attractive. The designers carried on the reflected surfaces inside to make never-ending illusional perspectives. They used the idea of shiny and mat of the same surface as it was two materials.

To consolidate a large number of industrial goods retailers that are currently scattered in the central city of Seoul, the 2,893,440 sf commercial centre will house approximately 6,000 shops. A supplementary facility, containing a fitness center, food court, office, is also part of the programme. The building design was driven by a number of physical influences. A highway that runs diagonally along the west and south faรงades creates a high visibility factor for the new centre. Proximity to the Seoul Airport restricts building heights in the area to 50.7m (about 10 storeys), resulting in a design that features 10 levels of above grade space: four levels of retail space, three levels of parking and storage, and another three levels of supplementary facility spaces at the top of the building. For additional space, the building extends five levels below grade, accommodating parking for approximately 1,800 cars on three levels and additional retail space on two levels. Inspired by the stream that borders the site and defines the southwestern edge, the metal cladding was designed to define the exterior of the building while echoing the water's curving path and perpetual fluidity. Within this framework, the various elements of the programme are nestled into place in order to create a cohesive collection of spaces that function together to resolve the complex programme. A strong ecological consciousness is reflected in the design, which uses such

As one of the most innovative trading houses in Europe, the engelhorn group has developed a trendsetting concept with the most fashionable designer labels. Focus of the range are accessories and shoes. The new construction of engelhorn completes the city quarter, which is enhanced by aesthetics and fascination. The dialectic of demand and understatement, which makes the designer brands so very desirable, is translated by the fascinating architecture. Expressivity and timelessness grow together in the urban context. The unconventional façade is a significant reflection of the company culture. Instead of dividing the façade horizontally – as suggested by the structure of the floors – the connection is diagonal. The polarity of weight and lightness, however, permits the building to provide conclusions to be drawn about the content: The interior space appears to curve towards the observer. The wedge-shaped glass surfaces shift like showcases beyond the closed surfaces, fusing the sales floors. The expressive design is translated into the interior, the ceiling edges are detached from the façade. The interplay of open and closed, is transmitted into the room. The connecting element is repeated in the interior space: a chain curtain, spanning across the floors from the ground to the fourth floor, accentuating simultaneously the consistently deployed staircase. The connecting diagonal becomes an experience for everyone; even from here

Directly located at Heilbronn’s pedestrian zone, the new shopping centre “Stadtgalerie” strengthens the inner-city location. The sumptuous architectural design integrates the building well into the town-space as a two-split building presenting different body languages. The Stadtgalerie Heilbronn comprises of three levels which invite to stroll, including a sales area of 13,000 square metres, and an attractive offer of approximately 75 shops and stores, cafés, and restaurants. The underground car park offers 600 parking spaces. The cubic building with its straight and hard edge and the rounded building with the curved and soft façade melt into each other and are well integrated in the existing town-space. The independence of the buildings is especially highlighted via the façade concept. Backlit light-slits cross the wall area in an erratic way and thereby open the building alignment in an optical way. In the darkness the alleyway suddenly becomes a light creation. The shape softens the bulk of the building, integrateing itself in a smooth way into the surrounding building structure. A penthouse with a filigree projecting roof marks the end of the arched building shell. Vertical coloured glass lamellae accentuate the outline. Due to the different day and night impressions, the building offers varying appearances. The three-storey shopping centre connects the various entrance levels and enables a suitable and flexible division of tenant areas. All floors

Conceptually the building is akin to a giant “market stall”. The exterior walls are permeable and transparent and in the manner of an open market. Shoppers are able to wander in from several directions. The building comprises three main spaces – a hypermarket at the basement level above the two-storey underground parking lot, a flexible space for retail outlets on two upper levels, and a pedestrian link that forms an integral part of the network of neighbourhood connections - all unified beneath a generous roof. The “retractable” roof is the dominant feature of the architectural form; the overhanging canopy extends eight metres on each side of the upper terraces, with irregular transparent rectangular openings bringing daylight to the interior. The land has a significant slope: Mehmet Akif Street is approximately eight metres lower than the rear of the site. The hypermarket entrance is located at the lower level facing a park, whereas the main access to the retail shopping is two floors higher, from London Road. The two streets are connected via a pedestrian route or “passage” that commences at the first floor of the shopping zone, traverses the mall alongside a planted area above the hypermarket and emerges on Mehmet Akif Street at the Metro station, via escalators, elevators or a staircase. The pedestrian route through the building is intended to encourage passing trade and community interaction. There are additional connections between

Coined "the Pride of Bangkok," SIAM Paragon is the first mega shopping complex in Thailand. Occupying one of the busiest transit intersections in the city, Siam Paragon takes advantage of its prominent location by serving as a critical link to the surrounding retail district. Strategically positioned adjacent to SIAM Center, Mahboonkrong and SIAM Discovery, the new centre offers 1.5 million-square feet of world-class shopping, entertainment, and cultural attractions. The RTKL-designed building reflects the level of luxury envisioned by the project's development team. On the front faรงade, a dramatic glass atrium serves as the centre's jewel attraction and grand entrance. Magnificent water displays and gardens accentuate an elevated plaza, linking SIAM Paragon to SIAM Centre. Inside, natural light as well as spacious corridors create a comfortable shopping environment. Perhaps the centre's greatest accomplishment is the way it addresses issues of circulation and layout. Strategic retail groupings and escalator arrangements minimise pedestrian congestion by circulating visitors and providing convenient access throughout the space and to both public transportation and parking facilities. With more than 250 high-end retailers as well as an upscale department store, modern gourmet supermarket, international food court, seawater aquarium, convention hall, bowling alley, cinema and IMAX theater, SIAM Paragon has become a celebrated landmark in Bangkok's diverse urban fabric.

The department store is located towards Mannerheimintie Street. The brick-copperglass façades of the office buildings in Urho Kekkosen katu Street mix nicely with the façades of the Hämäläistentalo block. Thus the centre gains a brick-dominated and active stree. The commercial spaces complement the service range of the city centre and improve its competitiveness compared with other commercial centres nearby. This is important in order to strengthen the vitality of the city centre and to avoid an urban decline syndrome, where old centres fade into repulsive areas of no man’s land. The street level premises of the new Kamppi are public, and the restaurants, commercial facilities and terminals are intertwined. The interior space represents the 21st century, where the choice of materials is ruled by a lifespan philosophy: they are aesthetic, functional, technically durable and economical also in the future. In the commercial spaces, a functional content gains the main role through the wide removable glass walls and the lighting, utilising the latest technology.

London based design consultancy JHP has been working with the country’s biggest and most progressive department store group, Shoppers’ Stop, on store design projects since 2002. The retailer always believed in the power of design and its positive effect on its business and appointed JHP to evolve and radically update its store concept at its latest store in Rajouri in New Delhi. The challenge was to bring a “theatrical” experience to the worlds that JHP had created previously for Shoppers’ Stop. Identifying and understanding the aspirations of the retailer’s consumer and transporting them into an arena of “lifestyle fashion” was key to the successful outcome of this project. It had to reflect the growing consumerism and aspiration of modern India. JHP set out to create a retail journey that expressed the different mood changing environments and also reflected the breadth of the retail offer within the new Shoppers’ Stop format. Behind the magnificent, double glazed shopfront lies the Cosmetics Hall, evoking the same emotion as when arriving at the lobby of a grand hotel. The double height space, provides the portal away from the busy life outside into the calm sophistication of a department store. The central atrium gives the building a heart and enables customers to view all floors within the building, creating a “sense of place”. The central fashion area is surrounded by coloured glass panels that appear to disappear

The Shopping and Entertainment complex for Riverstone is located in the Commercial and Retail “heart� of New Songdo city. Directly adjacent to Central Park along Main Street and Park Avenue, the location is easily accessible for New Songdo residents and visitors. Like the Korean landscape, this project is inspired by shimmering light and movement in which a rich series of activities is infused with a vigorous and lively atmosphere. It shapes spaces which embrace their neighbours and seamlessly fuse both the streetscape and perspective views. The name "Riverstone" expresses the dynamic relationship between the movement of nature and the built spatial environment to create a harmony of human scale and urban activity. Like the smooth flow of water across the riverbed, customers will circulate with ease through the linked series of spaces at Riverstone. The layout of "Riverstone" is inspired by name, "river + stone", with the mall snaking its way through the neighbouring structuring and parkland (the Central Park, the Northeast Asia Trade Tower, hotel, office building and the Songdo Convensia Convention Centre), defining the streetscape and perspective views. "Riverstone" will become South Korea's first international style shopping mall and as a premier shopping venue in Korea. To achieve this, Taubman Asia, fee developer for the 1,130,000 square feet (105,000 square metre) retail and entertainment complex, is integrating the essential ingredients of convenience

Forum Duisburg is an inner-city regeneration project located in the heart of Duisburg. The design team worked with T+T Design to deliver the new, successful retail environment. The numerous pedestrian accesses linking the Forum with the surrounding streets play an important part in integrating the development to the existing urban grid. The malls are designed as individual buildings to create a continuation of the urban fabric and specifically the pedestrian street – Koigstrasse. The 106,000-squre-metre development offers 1,200 parking spaces, a direct underground railway link, a children’s daycare centre and a range of services for people with restricted mobility. It also includes 57,000-square-metre of retail space spread across four levels and comprising 90 retailers, making it the largest inner-city retail project in North RhineWestphalia. One of the principal anchor stores of Forum Duisburg is a new five-level Karstadt department store with an attractive landscaped roof garden. Spacious voids at all levels allow generous views between the four retail floors and create an open environment with squares, arcades and terraces. A harmonious, naturallylit interior combines brick and stone walls with wood, brick and natural stone flooring. As a part of the art programme, a specially designed 65 metre-high sculpture, "Goldene Leiter" (Golden Ladder) connects all levels of the Forum and projects 54 metres above street

The ladder was made from 32 tonnes of steel that were then covered with 24-carat gold leaf. Forum Duisburg is the first retail project in mainland Europe to be awarded a BREEAM "Very Good" rating for its impressive sustainable features. The building materials used are prevalent throughout the region. A block heating unit allows power, heat and refrigeration to be generated on the spot, reducing average total energy consumption by at least 25 percent compared to that of similar shopping centres. The 10,000-squaremetre lawn roof above the department store was installed to improve the microclimate of the surrounding area.

What seems to be happening in Kaohsiung is that the city has sought to find a focus for its urban renewal in the residential experience; that is to say, in what the city means in the everyday life of its citizens. The overall goal is to enhance the attractiveness and the comfort level of the city as a place to live. The SHE concept (safe, healthy, ecological) is the driver behind the development plans. Within this context, Star Place fulfills a role in the lively and resident-orientated urban landscape that is more on the urban than on the natural scale of the spectrum. As a shopping centre, the project typifies a contemporary public-private form of architectural space. In summary, while the project does not find itself directly within the scope of the natureenhancing urban regeneration schemes, it is still felt that there is a link with the overall improvement goals of Kaohsiung, because thoroughly urban facilities with mass-appeal also form a contributing factor to the livability of a city. Moreover, the project is completely in synch with a resident-orientated approach to urbanism, in which the experience of everyday space by the citizen is the central consideration.

Forum Mersin is located in the Mediterranean city of Mersin (Turkey), close to the seafront where the city´s population of 1.8 million triples during the summer months. The 66,000 sqm centrally-located site is divided by a boulevard, requiring an innovative design concept to join the two plots. They designed an open-air bridge which offers views of the seafront whilst joining the two main elements of the scheme: a covered shopping arçade and an outdoor mall. Mersin’s unique history, maritime culture and beautiful boulevards inspired the centre’s design. The combination of Mediterranean and Anatolian-inspired architecture with Turkish and modern elements has resulted in a one-of-a kind concept. Forum Mersin was designed to be an integral part of the city with strong links to its surroundings. The new urban space is made up of a variety of environments, each bringing a different feel and experience to the visitor. The architecture incorporates the existing historical features with modern iconic elements, such as the landscape, the cinemas and red lighted tower in the outdoor mall. Every element of the design mirrors the scheme’s seafront location, from the water-like ripples in the pavement, to the palm trees, the many water features, the sails used for shading and the pier-like bridge. Forum Mersin’s heating and cooling systems are energy-efficient, and elements such as sensor faucets reduce water consumption.

Chapman Taylor Architects designed the master plan for the Baneasa project, one of the largest mixed-use developments in South East Europe and comprising over one million square metres of residential, leisure and commercial uses. Baneasa Shopping City is the fully-integrated, centrepiece of the Baneasa Commercial area. It was designed to allow a phased construction programme in order to respond to the growth of the retail market in Bucharest, commencing with the construction of a Carrefour hypermarket and shopping gallery, followed by furniture and DIY superstores and Romania’s first IKEA. The master plan conceived the whole retail platform and the Shopping City – opened recently by famous model Eva Herzigová – is the second phase, comprising over 65,000-square-metre leasable retail space. This is predominantly a fashion mall, containing 150 shop units over two levels, five major anchor stores, cafés, a dramatic three-storey food court and approximately 1,000 parking spaces at basement level. Future phases of the development will add a cinema and entertainment complex together with additional luxury retail units.

The main entrances of the building are designed by a distinctive approach to create a warm atmosphere by building configuration and materials while the façades facing the industrial areas are built by industrial building materials. At the planning stage, it is intended to create social gathering spaces. A large public square is designed at the main entrance of the building for gathering and recreational purposes. The land plot is evaluated in an effective manner as a result of the necessity to build a horizontal building according to building regulations. The circular surface on the main façade is designed to welcome the people approaching from the city and orient the people to the side entrances. The boomerang-shaped atrium is planned to guide the customers from the entrance to the interior of the centre and obtain an effective pedestrian flow. The centre is planned with a triangular flow scheme. Wooden material is used densely to create a warm interior.

The design concept for this luxury development finds its inspiration in the combination of Madinat Al Arab as a prime waterfront location, which is attractive to both investors and to a wide and international group of end users. The super imposition of these qualities has resulted in an architectural and urban concept consisting of a coherent, unified plan, with a range of lavish, contemporary apartments and a hotel grouped around generous public and landscape spaces. Designers have chosen to group the project components in three volumes, in order to preserve the integrity of the plan. These three volumes are conceived as precious stones cut in half, with the "rough", untreated side exposed to the city and the radiant, rich, jewelled sides oriented to catch the best views. A lattice structure of variable depth covers the jewelled faรงades and the roof of the shared plaza, substantiating the identity of the development as a whole. The special attention to interior comes to the fore at all levels; the urban interior consisting of shared spaces in and around the plaza radiates the same unique brand of luxury and exclusive craftsmanship as the individual apartments and hotel rooms, thanks to the integrative concept of inwardly orientated "gems", encased in a precious web.

Gaziantep is one of the modern and developed cities of Turkey with its well-developed industry and its long history dating back to Hittites. As one of the largest cities of Turkey, Gaziantep was in need of a shopping centre that would offer commercial spaces as well as social spaces. Sanko Park, opened in Gaziantep on April 2009, is designed as a regional shopping centre composed of hypermarket, shops, anchors, foodcourt area and cinema halls. The shopping centre is aimed to be integrated with the urban structure of the city and offer contemporary spaces as retail functions and social spaces. Due to its location at the centre of the city, an urban square is designed at the main entrance as a continuity of the urban space. The urban square has a major role as connecting the shopping arcade at the interior of the project with the city. The form of the land is horizontal in proportion which leaded to plan the large anchor spaces at the rear of the building. The shopping centre consists of four retail floors in which the cinema and food court area are located on the upper floor. A dialogue of interior and exterior space is created by the opening of the food court to a large terrace which has a spectacular city view. The main faรงade facing the main street composed of a large canopy, terrace, stone and glass surfaces creates the identity of the project. As a historical city, Gaziantep guided to use natural stone and wooden elements with sun shades at the exterior of the building. 2

CEPA Shopping Centre has received one of the most prestigious awards "Best Commercial & Retail Project" at Cityscape Middle East Real Estate Awards 2009 in Abu Dhabi. CEPA Shopping Centre opened in autumn 2007 in Ankara is envisioned to bring a new spatial interpretation to shopping center concept by integrating urban elements into the interior space. It is aimed to create a shopping center that people can experience the diversity and variety of urban space at the interior. Hence, the main atrium at the entrance is designed as a public square crowned by a large skylight, while the atrium at the rear has an art wall as a street feature. The site is on Ankara’s key commercial and public artery, Eskisehir Road, opposite Middle East Technical University. The design which took shape by the boundaries of the site and the programme of the shopping centre is planned as a horizontal rectangular prism. The shops are located at the front side on the first and second floors while the hypermarket composed of two floors runs along the rear side. The third story is occupied by the fast food units, restaurants, food court, cinemas and entertainment centre. In contrast to the most of the shopping centres, the façade at the main street is designed to have maximum visual relation with the environment. The main façade is designed in search for different solutions as an outcome of the narrowness of the façade with respect to the ratio of the width and length of the building.

Domus Furniture Mall Location:

Designer:

Virgile and Stone Associates Ltd.

Completion date: 2006

232 - 233

The challenge was to develop the design of the interior space of the 62,000 sqm mall using a contemporary architectural language, which would frame and complement the furniture retail offers within. The mall stretches 200 m and consists of three floors of dedicated retail space. The commission also included the lighting scheme for both the external and internal spaces. Daylight was an important element with an 8,400 sqm glass roof to the main atrium adding natural light throughout the day. One such gesture is a series of sculptural "trees", clad in wood and clustered in different areas throughout the space, and they shoot up from ground floor level in varying heights. The trees have occasional mirrored sides, making them fun and visually interesting and true to nature. They can adapt to the season by being decorated for promotional and seasonal marketing. Another distinctive feature is the hanging "gardens," made up of coloured glass panels in shades of green and blue. These installations descend from the glazed roof into the mall, taking visitors' eyes upwards and downwards. In the daytime, the light dapples through the "gardens" and creates a playful, calming pattern of colours throughout the mall. A clear sense of orientation and of location is reassuring within large-scale interior spaces, so a variety of spatial and graphic techniques have been employed to ‘hold the hand’ of the

shopper. The spatial layers are articulated through a colour palette inspired by the natural elements. Store directories, located at key junctions, are placed at angles to reflect the contours of the building’s plan. The underfoot landscape is also distinctively defined. An intertwining flooring pattern stretches across the ground level, where a variety of natural finishes including stone tiles and pebbles as well as some integrated, recessed LED floor lights evoke landscapes as seen from the air, so from the upper floors the lower territories are intriguing. This flooring technique encourages customers to meander along undulating routes through the space and connects the two entrances at street level and from the car park below. At Domus the landscape is not just about commerce. Some of the atrium spaces are devoted to non-commercial uses – spaces to rest, refresh, and refuel or simply to contemplate. We designed a reception desk and sample library located at the heart of the mall. The

concept enables visitors to use the resources to get advice and information relating to home decoration, or suppliers and retailers based within the mall. Landscaped seating areas, including cast concrete seating, are also located at the two ends of the mall at ground floor level and are scattered across upper floors.

The project is located in a marked topography: architecture of stone terraces which shape the terrain. A soft, light and undulating enclosure, made by means of U-glass elements, goes along the upper cornice of the building on the stone wall and thus, dismounts the wall to organise the scattered areas of the building in the vertex opposite the wall. Baseboard is made of a huge canvas pleated fabric, conceptually plotted with holes. It is equivalent to a huge urban shelf.Crowning is a winding enclosure of translucent glass packs in a quantum way. The packaged programmes look like big urban bubbles. The main idea about this project is to build a blind frontage that conceals part of infrastructures and evacuation paths of a big shopping mall. The designers appreciated to propose an image that would change longitudinally, with different decorative motifs, as if it were a billboard. Therefore, the constructive solution had to be very economical. Final solution is a textile canvas (as those used in haulaging trucks that stand up with hard weather conditions) on a simple metallic framing. This frontage would cost about 5-10% less than other proposals made by property owners.

Times Square Centre is a two-level, community center located at the 3.5-mile exit on the very busy Sheikh Zayed Road, the main arterial connecting Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The stretch of freeway is dotted with large furniture showrooms and automobile dealerships. The project is setback, unlike the adjacent buildings, so it screams for attention. The exterior façade was designed to function as an electronic billboard with a layered glass façade of translucent frosted panels and graphics back lit by LED offering 256 million colours. The design capitalises on this large frontage to create a kinetic, eye-stopping palette of light attracting the attention of thousands of passengers traveling by each day. The project’s interior space takes advantage of a central atrium with a glazed skylight and a layered array of landscape and rain curtains to create an oasis within the centre. The interior uses a palette of soft, neutral colours in buffs and beiges on the floor, with a porcelain tile which is reminiscent of wood flooring. Abstract interlocking shapes provide pattern on the floor while soft wood ceiling panels create a sense of warmth and softness.

Festival Waterfront Centre is the social, commercial and communal heart of Dubai Festival City, a major mixed-use project on the Dubai Creek. As the only waterfront retail and entertainment centre in Dubai, the project has been designed using water as a key element that organizes its areas while providing a sense of movement, excitement and refreshment. Key pedestrian paths and gathering spaces are organised along the water, creating a new centre of energy that is envisioned to inform future development that will connect to downtown Dubai. In creating Festival Waterfront Centre as the vibrant, communal hub of Dubai Festival City, Jerde continued the spirit of the overall master plan in the architectural design. The project’s key areas are organised in radiating, arcing paths that recall ripples on the water. Beginning at the waterfront, the first ring of energy is Festival Marina, a 300-metre-wide marina, which is comparable to high-end Mediterranean marinas and offers 100 berths for luxury yachts and other watercraft. Taking full advantage of the creekside location, the Marina is designed as a vibrant esplanade surrounded by fine dining, shopping, and fivestar accommodations. The second ring is the Waterfront Pavilions, a series of specialty retail shops fronting Dubai Creek. The Pavilions offer a high-end shopping experience. Next is Canal Walk, a freshwater canal that is lined by an open-air promenade with two levels

of terraced walkways and open-air dining. Canal Walk contains the largest collection of international restaurants, cafés and bistros in Dubai. A fleet of watercraft, or abras, are available to transport guests along the canal. During lunch and dinner, music entertainment is scheduled throughout the month of April. The canal runs between the main shopping centre and the pavilions that front onto the marina. The fourth ring is Crescent Walk, an interior, three-level pedestrian street lined on both sides by retailers. It is enclosed by a large skylight to allow visitors to enjoy the desert sun while being protected from the climate extremes. The heart of Crescent Walk is Festival Square, a vibrant, high-volume space that will host worldclass exhibitions, fashion shows and other live performances. Festival Waterfront Centre’s final ring of energy is Crescent Drive, a vehicular street lined with upscale retailers. The design of Crescent Drive is inspired by the street character of historic shopping districts, with a pedestrian scale that is similar to Rodeo Drive. The unique location and design of Festival Waterfront Centre has helped attract an

eclectic mix of international retailers. Several brands have opened their first shops in Dubai. At its southern end, Festival Waterfront Centre links to Dubai Gold Marketplace, which features a large selection of the world’s best gold retailers and connects the project to Festival Power Centre.

Highcross is a mixed-use, urban regeneration scheme in the heart of Leicester. The 93,000 m2 development by Hammerson Plc, comprises 52 new stores, including a John Lewis department store, restaurants, a multi-screen cinema, associated parking and housing. Their concept for the masterplan was to create a series of city blocks designed around a hierarchy of new streets and public squares. A key consideration in the masterplanning process was the integration of the existing Shires shopping centre into the wider masterplan, both in terms of design and connectivity. The design for the new retail element of Highcross extends the existing Shires scheme at all levels to create an additional two-level enclosed mall. The interior of the Shires has also undergone a significant refurbishment, which seamlessly integrates the existing centre internally with the new mall extension and introduces a much higher level of sustainability. Many of the same design principles and palette of materials used in the Shires refurbishment were introduced in the new extension, creating a wide covered street, continuing the existing street pattern and linking to the public realm and new city square. Public art forms an integral part of the scheme and they worked closely with PIPA Leicester (Program for the Implementation of Art) to commission artists to produce art in key public spaces in and around the development. 2

The Enterprise Square 5 is an amalgamation of shopping, entertainment and office spaces set at a conspicuous waterfront site of Kowloon Bay. Looking from afar, the twenty-storey shopping podium, aptly named as MegaBox, appears to form a single monolithic box. To break down the overall mass, 30 different tones of red are introduced to the faรงade. An expansive circular glass wall cuts through the front elevation, not only to add visual interest to the building, but also enhance interaction between inside activity and urban fabric. Perched high above on the shopping podium, the 15-storey twin office towers are clad in glass to reflect their different use, while inviting natural sunlight as well as glamorous sea view into the interior space. The architectural vocabulary of the Enterprise Square 5 stands in stark contrast to the urban fabric in Kowloon Bay. While the office towers are rendered transparent, the shopping podium is conceptualised as a massive opaque box in striking red, dominating the waterfront and creating an iconic new landmark.

Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is a mixed-development comprising an international class shopping and entertainment centre with ample basement car park facilities. The shopping centre forms a podium for two luxury serviced apartment towers, one boutique hotel and one 20-storey corporate office tower. Located strategically in the heart of the bustling Bukit Bintang shopping and business precinct, the development sits on 12.6 acres of prime land at the intersection of Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Raja Chulan. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is well served by major access roads, and is supplemented with the services of well-developed public transportation systems. The faรงade for the entire development consists of a disciplined combination of curtain walling, colour-backed glazing with stone and aluminium cladding. With 6 levels of retail, the retail outlets directly front onto a linear mall, bathed in natural light in the daytime, with calm soothing colours at night. The careful and strategic positioning of retail anchors further enhances retail activity. The shopping experience is heightened by generously wide shopping aisles, high ceilings with full height and well-lit display shop windows. The main entry leads shoppers into the heart of the mall, descending from the main street level down a grand staircase onto the 42m wide column-free Bintang Circle plaza. This 5-storey atrium with a glass roof forms the focal public space of the entire development and

Designers from Beijing, Tokyo and New York came together to design the individual commercial facilities within this complex – a part of the redevelopment of Sanlitun, a popular entertainment area located in the embassy district of Beijing. This dynamic mix of talent and vision will define the new Sanlitun. Because the client wanted to maintain Chinese elements while incorporating bar facilities, the designers used gold-coloured mirrorfinish stainless panels and cast iron screens decorated with traditional Chinese window patterns to create a Chinese atmosphere with a modern touch. Some parts of the mirrors were deliberately pressed into uneven surfaces, creating a façade that shifts throughout the day with the changing light of the sun. The reflected light creates an enlarged surface area and gives the complex completely different looks during the day and at night. By making a "decorative" and "surface" interlacing in the form, they set a lot of square size of the openings. The opening section can be used as windows, advertising and a wide variety of functions. Uses of these elements constitute a complex and rich façade.

Situated in the basement of the iconic Galeries Lafayette on boulevard Haussmann in Paris, the new women’s shoe department designed by Jouin Manku is vast, offering over 3200-squaremetre of women’s shoes. Easy to navigate and brimming with 150 different brands, creativity abounds in the many products and styles available. Inspired by the famous glass dome above the Galeries, Patrick reinterprets this emblem into abstracted, undulating rose petals that cover the low technical ceiling of the basement (only 2.4 metres) and seem to rise in the middle – like the cupola itself. The effect is feminine and soft, with a sense of movement throughout the petals that draws one’s gaze deeper into the space. "The space retains the energy and excitement of being in a bazaar," says Patrick Jouin. "A department store is unlike other stores because of this. You come here to stroll, to explore, to browse, to seek inspiration, not just to shop. So while the clients must always be able to move easily from one section to another, there should also be an element of discovery and surprise." Customers are led to the spacious basement showroom by an elegant, central curving staircase, whose golden railings resemble flowing shoelaces. Once there, the space is organised around an open space plan, each brand demarcated from the others by the inoxclad columns and built-in furniture designs,

with luxury brands lining the perimeter in their own mini-boutiques – the styles of which are still integrated with the rest of the design. The sculptural but minimal shoe displays throughout the space resonate with the seating units, footstools and couches, all custom-designed by Jouin Manku, integrating special stitch work that calls upon the renowned legacy of footwear through the ages. The strong sense of cohesion between all of the elements in the space, and softness about them, is created in part by the lighting design. The play between shadows and light is done both by the talented lighting designers, L'Observatoire International, as well as the colour palette – darker tones of the custom carpeting echo furniture elements, for example, creating shadows within the space separate of the actual lighting. "Light is a very important element in this project," comments Patrick. "both for being able to see all the details and craftmanship in a pair of shoes, and seeing how the shoes actually look on you."
