A skylight floods the mall with daylight while preventing direct sunlight from reaching the interior. A rhythm of diffuse light directed upward partitions the multi-storied interior as downlights brilliantly illuminate corridors and retail space. The play of light and shadow references the buildings architectural form and its materials. Exterior illumination utilizes back lighting to emphasise architectural elements, creating a distinctive design that is also effective from afar.
