Ground Floor Plan

In the treatment of the premises that are at the bottom of the ground with west facing, it was proposed to use sliding louvre curtains made of aluminium for sun protection. The pedestrian plaza that integrates the existing donation area with the shopping plaza forms a large park as a whole. Materials such as apparent concrete, glass and aluminium were used for the low maintenance of the plaza.
