The adaptive reuse project in Banceuy, Bandung, represents a harmonious blend of preservation and innovation, transforming an existing waffle structure into a vibrant shopping mall. At the heart of this endeavor is a commitment to preserving the historical essence of the original structure while infusing contemporary elements to breathe new life into the space. The design revolves around a central circulation system, strategically positioned as the main focal point within the plan. This not only enhances the overall accessibility but also serves as a dynamic element that seamlessly integrates the old and the new.
The façade of the shopping mall is a testament to the project’s commitment to adaptability and modern aesthetics while still preserving the visual cues of the old design. A dynamic façade, adorned with innovative materials and architectural elements, not only revitalizes the exterior but also reflects the mall’s evolving nature. This juxtaposition of the old and new creates a visually engaging and contextually relevant architectural expression.
In a conscious effort to promote sustainability and connectivity with nature, the project incorporates embedded greenery across all storeys. Lush vegetation and carefully selected plantings adorn various levels, providing not only an aesthetic appeal but also contributing to a healthier and more environmentally conscious shopping experience. This integration of green spaces not only fosters a sense of well-being but also reinforces the adaptive reuse project’s commitment to sustainable design practices.
