The design successfully integrated the multi-functioncomponents through a dynamic retail strategy, attractive circulation flow,nature-infused landscape and consistent architecture language. The central engine hub and severalkey anchors, associated with the top-level terrace and sunken plaza wereinspired by the natural characteristics of Green Valley. The retail environmentis broken into terraces by solid massing blocks, which encouraged the maximumretail attraction and public space access, whilst maximizing the retail andF&B exposure.
The design fully took the advantageof local climate, to create a comfortable balance between the indoor andoutdoor experience with varied bridging connection techniques. The curved formand ribbon panels tighten the entire development of different components intoone harmonious overall image and created a dynamic identity and bold brand.
