The design process and composition starts from the design idea of a static element disturbed from a diagonal movement – the Bishop’s Movement. So, we shifted the central core volume to created the most material element – the entertainment building. In this “green shift” will be pushed downwards thereby releasing a new level where they will be granted internal courtyard.
The podium is design feature that will include all the commercial buildings in order to shape a big garden that will ensure a sustainable strategy for all these spaces. The green blends into the terrace creating a whole new roof garden vision embracing the entertainment building. Elements like coloured perforated sheet facade and glazed walls will give the overall a contemporary feeling that integrates with the modern classical facade. A gentle touch of creativity and modernity that links the podium and the service apartment buildings. The use of natural materials brings warmness to the environment and also helps to improve the overall sustainability. They are themselves low in carbon emitting production and usually a lot more durable and effective than modern insulating materials.
