Award winning eco-architect Jason Pomeroy of Pomeroy Studio recently celebrated the launch of the Century City Mall he designed in the Philippines. The architecture seeks to challenge the ‘business as usual’ energy and water intensive mall typology by going back to basics. The 22,000 sqm mall is characterised by its shell-like structure that seamlessly forms the wall and roof, and protects the interior from the tropical rain and sun. The internal spatial organisation is structured along 19th century arcade principles, whereby a public thoroughfare provides a passage through Century City. It further seeks to optimize the penetration of natural light and ventilation through a series of skylights and air wells. The environmental and social responsiveness is also enhanced by a series of stepped sky courts that form external terraces to provide destination food and beverage areas. The culmination of such social spaces optimises the experience for the shoppers, and furthermore drives down the operating costs for both the tenants and the landlord.
