Back in July 2018, we made a large tensile structure to cover the sky light of a new shopping mall in Siem Reap. It's the first community mall, open air style designed by a local architecture.
I revisited this site again in October 2019. See how much have changed.
I have worked with many community malls in Thailand before, but this one is truly unique. It composes of 5 floor levels with different contour and shape.
This mall has unique large stair (Not an escalator) for occupancy to circle through each floor.
Ventilation is excellence, breeze of cold air can be felt in most area.
The center pole of this tensile structure is 20m tall, it was really hard to get the column there.
Good design for light, visibility and ventilation, Floor openings to be found many points on each floor.
Top floor is for catering and wedding ceremony.
This area will soon become sky bar. There're 2 pools on this floor, I'm not sure what's the purpose of this pool but It looks alight for children pool.
Look like a walk into jungle.
The entrance stair is amazing ! One of a kind.
Shop visibility is good. You will find Starbucks, Amazon Cafe on the ground floor.
