Text description provided by the architects. Standing as a precursor to the adjacent shopping mall building, the Sales Center embodies similar characteristics to the design of the shopping mall: the unyielding pursuit of organic and liquid-like geometries, which allows it to blend harmoniously with its future contextual surroundings.
The design is characterized by its limpidness and visual permeability as is emphasized by the double-heighted glass fin, curtain wall system. The transparent glass volume is enveloped by an elegant, organic form constructed with GFRC. The continuous and fluid surfaces navigates between interior and exterior nearly seamlessly.
The main lobby is surrounded with an abundance of floor-to-ceiling glazing, which provides a wealth of natural light throughout the space. At the main entrance, the GFRC reveals a large span of curtain wall and a floating canopy as a welcoming gesture to the adjacent main thoroughfare.
