The Park Solo Baru Mall’s Grand Opening
Opened early this month, PTI Architects introduces a contemporary and innovative concept in The Park Solo Baru mall design. It is situated within a master planned development where more than half of the site is zoned as green and open space. True to its name- The Park, a unique feature is the integration of the open landscape surrounding the mall with the lush tropical garden within the interiors, providing one a unique and rejuvenating experience. The mall layout consists of two parts – the restaurants and F&B outlets opening-up to the interior garden and the mall complex further divided into 2 parts by a circulation spine that links to the restaurant row. Its curved and fluid plan is a refreshing change from the usual rigid, square-ish mall layout of the past. The same fluid forms characterize the front façade where a secondary skin of aluminum composite panels provides a peek of the retail interiors in a similar manner a drapery would, when drawn open. Located some distance from Solo, a city of rich historical heritage, The Park Solo Baru Mall provides an alternative getaway for locals and tourists alike.
