CHINA OVERSEAS INTERNATIONAL CENTER RETAIL INTERIOR
SITE AREA: 15,242 SM
Completion date: 2017
AKAIA designers provided the interior design for this 28,510 square meter retail project. The concept for the design was inspired by the idea of glass crystals rising from the earth in the form of the office towers that merge with glass crystals falling from the sky, collecting to form the retail podium. The exterior of the podium becomes a composition of iconic and crystalline forms that have a strong identity which define exciting interior and exterior spaces.
The podium showcases luxury retailers, fine restaurants and casual dining, entertainment and boutique cinemas. The podium interior is defined by a six-story light-filled atrium that connects to the subway and below-grade retail concourses. Here within the atrium and surrounding storefronts, the theme of “falling crystals” will be visually apparent in the detailing of interior elements such as the escalators, balconies, ceilings and floors.
