this dramatically shaped building is an innovative retail concept located as the podium of a proposed 75-level landmark residential apartment tower
on a near-oceanfront site in an existing established tourist and leisure retail area.
the concave glazed wave forms along the street create covered
pedestrian areas leading into and through the site, connecting the two street frontages with an internal landscaped garden with water features and
a small informal grass terrace area. the internal volume of the courtyard is formed by a dramatic continuation of the glazed wave, only here it turns
into a vortex, wrapping around the courtyard and creating large shaded and sheltered areas at ground level as well through upper-level roof terraces
retail anchor for the site is a three-level emporium store, with the speciality shops and outdoor cafes and dining of the lower two floors supplemented
by a rooftop signature bistro/restaurant featuring an all-weather dining terrace.
