Ascendas Plaza is connected to the Ascendas Tower building. The retail positioning is directed towards family shopping and F&B dining. The old retail space was old and dark, and we have given it a total facelift. The careful use of curved lines and timber veneer has made the space feel much warmer and welcoming. The special hanging planters also enhanced visual comfort and green appeal. The exterior façade is covered by a newly integrated skin layer without demolishing the existing façade. Vertical lines were adopted as the unifying design language that enhances façade verticality. The street-level overhang is extended from the façade to create uniformity. Bright colors and layered lighting effects give the retail podium a brand new look that is much more vibrant and contemporary.
