By exploring various sculptural qualities of the interior space, we create a fluid, dynamic, and seamless spatialexperience for visitors along the main circulation spine, a north-south axis connecting two urban plazas. The project retail mix includes a boutique market, a children’s zone at 3F, a 10-screen cinema at 4F, and other rich combination of
leisure, retail, and restaurants. We designed the main circulation in the form of two dynamis interweaving paths which define three atriums and embrace an elevator system
that connects the variety of tenant mix. The two interweaving paths intersect and expand to naturally direct visitors to shop-fronts on both sides while they walk along the north-south axis spine. Detailed sectional studies generated a tapered section profile that gradually unfolds along shopfronts and enhances sightlines across different floors. It
aims to set up an ‘experiential chemistry’among the program mix.
通过对室内空间的雕塑性研究,我们创造出一个流畅的空间体验。购物中心的主轴沿南北轴线连接两个城市广场。主动线是两条动态交织的路径,围绕三个中庭空间,交织路径相交和收放自然无缝地带动游客到达两侧的商店。透过檐口, 栏杆的剖面设计研究,提高在不同楼层的可视性。雕塑性的中庭扶梯,提高在不同楼层的可达性。流畅的空间造型,建立不同的视觉定位连接三个中庭和逐渐展开的店面。它的目的是建立一个丰富流畅的室内空间体验。
