A modern interpretation of the traditional courtyard building, this commercial development challenges the conventional retail typology - eliminating long internal corridors and creating moments of discovery through a layered, meandering parti that is scaled to fit within the surrounding residential community. A health club and events space anchor the development with a balance of shell & core retail, food & beverage and co-working space. Monolithic, clay facades are carved out to open up the development into a series a courtyards that interlink in plan and section. An architecture that maintains privacy towards neighbors while creating a social and vibrant interior.
