Occupying the development’s southern district, Bund Finance Center Mall represented an exciting challenge for Kokaistudios to create interiors that conceptually link to its riverside locale; blur boundaries between inside and out; and above all, support the shopping center’s lifestyle remit. In moving away from the mall’s original objective and towards lifestyle, the team devised overarching themes of beachside vacations, and above all, WATER.

Throughout, materials and finishes match the project’s overall holiday feel. For example, walls feature both custom-made ceramic tiles, as well as wood: more evocative of a beachside hotel or eatery, they strike a clear lifestyle tone.
