Stylish neighborhood mall
Sector: Retail, Commercial
Country: Hong Kong
Client: Gaw Capital
Services: A&A, Architecture, Interior Design
Budget: Around $30 Million
MAP was asked to re-position the existing Housing Authority neighbourhood mall at Lei Cheng Uk for Gaw Capital.
Low budget and high expectations are difficult things to bring together. The mall had always suffered from only one escalator which would run down in the morning and up in the afternoon. To install a second escalator involved alterations to ground beams and site formation works. Enormously complex approval process all handled by MAP in-house AP.
The MAP interior designers did a brilliant job of designing low cost but stylish bespoke ceilings for the escalator lobby and developing a pixelated tile floor pattern with accent light coloured tiles..
The rebranding is a huge success and well received by the occupants of the apartments above who are not an easy group to satisfy.
The project was completed on time and on budget.
