Saloria Architects were invited to submit a tender for architectural services for a new shopping centre in Vijayawada in India.
The brief asked for the development to […] “create an internationally outstanding retail development, providing shopping and entertainment facilities and being a centre for regional employment.”
Saloria embraced this aim and came up with an innovative design solution for a building that would not only be a flagship for shopping centres with family orientated entertainment facilities in this region but also one that could function in a bioclimatic manner by addressing the site’s challenging climate and harnessing as many inherent natural powers as possible.
The result was an environmentally friendly design interspersed with vernacular cultural concepts of melody and dance synonymous with the region’s culture that would become a veritable hub of activity aimed at attracting visitors from all around.
