Entry Description

The designers analyzed the existing business types such as retail and catering in the mall. The high daylighting atriums provide favorable space conditions and gave them a lot of room for imagination. The team made use of and centered on the atrium spaces to re-imagine this commercial space. Firstly, they embedded a bookstore reading area into the space of two atriums. It links up 1F and 2F via different levels of stairs, hence forming a vertical visiting and experiential circulation route in the two atriums while creating rich, playful visual effects and experiences within the limited space.
