Center Square Mall - Ernakulum, is a large retail and entertainment destination on M.G.Road in the commercial hub of Ernakulum. The program includes anchor stores, vanilla retail, gold souk, food and entertainment zone and a multiplex. The site is awkwardly shaped with a narrow frontage on M.G.Road. The design strategy focuses on the segregation of pedestrian and vehicular traffic and the creation of a linear atrium, which binds all the functions. The building has 3 levels of basement parking with 6 levels of retail and entertainment functions above. The mall is set back from M.G.Road to form a large pedestrian plaza on the main road creating a vibrant public realm. The front facade is a vibrant dynamic composition in aluminium and glass to announce the building while the other facades are extremely sustained. Significant effort has been made to incorporate signages onto the building facades.
