This building sits in a rather important iconic street with recognisable architecture. The job here was to allow it to blend with what's around, but make a statement of its own and invite more pedestrians into this mixed-use building with restaurant, commercial and residential areas. A nondescript white bow on the outside, the visual transforms completely once you are inside. The open courtyards, lush greens, seating in the open air, large pivoted doors forming an entire wall and all that timber provide quite the contrast. It's warm, unique and would certainly intrigue pedestrians and lure them into the spaces.
