The project is distinctly demarked with a crystal sky retail store above a simplistic backdrop office building block and a frontal hovering, dynamically skewed, vertical anchor retail store. One form is articulated with modern progressive glass and fiber cement linear panel cladding, the other with internal wooden shutters behind clear glass to further polarize the visual tension between the two forms while articulating geometries of balance to achieve a settling synergy.
Both forms sit on an urban tray platform activated as a cultural plaza – a tribute to the urban landscape. The building is an innovative attempt at greatly increasing the retail space percentage beyond the typical yields on the same street, while invigorating the additional retail space with experiential vantages that will ensure the preserved and further enhanced urban street presence .
