Batam Mall: Building The Cornerstone

Our project Batam Mall is in the stage of building the cornerstone. Batam Mall is a mixed-use building that is built on top of an old existing building and located at the heart of the city. Designed with an open-space concept and careful selection of materials as well as the choice of activities and creative artwork exhibited, the mall accentuates the spirit of locality. Furthermore, the mall’s focal point is the open alfresco area that located between the new and the old buildings. It is designed for relaxation and comfort, taking into account the proportion and natural extension of space in order to make this area a solace common space for families and friends.
