3rd floor lobby area

By sharing the same form with another 2 lobby areas, this feature differentiate by using another technique of installation. Since the floor is family-friendly area, materials selected are mostly tropical leaves, to create a lush and refresh look. Contoured polycarbonate curtains curve through plant materials to control the overall form of the space. Its translucent and corrugated effect will blur materials in-between.

2nd floor lobby area

Rigid and freeform materials in a wavering form of water, using artificial coral with clear acrylic rod, were selected for this more stylish area of the shopping complex. Both materials are individually hanged in the same manner as 1st floor lobby, sharing the same concept. These clear acrylic rods have to be installed one-by-one on-site with lighting tube in-between them. Artificial corals were suspended using fishing line, in another axis, interweaving through transparent grid.

1st floor lobby area

Installing white Phalaenopsis with customised bronze aluminium bar in a grid pattern is an approach for this area of luxury goods. Combination of solid and soft materials was calculated, fabricated, and installed in a wavering form of water. Both materials were individually hanged as the entire feature would not be complete rigid and can be slightly oscillated.

Two customised aluminium bars were attached together to create a cross-shape in section, then cut-to-length, before an on-site installation. Orchids were installed in single length but different densities, relating to the length of aluminium bars, as they can enhance different visual perceptions from different views.
