Text description provided by the architects. CRAFT is designed to be an antithesis to its mall location characterized by the placeless experiences that dominate mall cultures.

To subvert the typical experience of a glass horizontal edge between the corridor and ‘ interior’ space we used the arcade as a means to structure a reference to the type of a colonnaded walkway defining spaces of intimacy, pause and refuge from the cacophony of the busy corridors just outside.

This edge is designed as a wooden arcade, assembled by stacking and rotating horizontal wooden members around a pivot point and hence through their form defining the width of a booth while rising as high as double height of the façade. The warmth and intimate scale of the booth is offset by the continuity of the service bar and open kitchen right up to the alfresco dining space beyond.
