Highpoint Shopping Centre Aluminum Ceiling Decoration Design Case
Grimshaw Architects were approached by the property co-owner, The GPT Group, to provide a concept design for a new 30,000sqm extension to the existing shopping centre.
Two new unique fashion malls and a fresh food market are part of the redevelopment, with approximately 120 specialty retailers and the first David Jones department store in the western suburbs included.
The fashion mall is the shape of a crescent, which creates views that change and unfold as shoppers move through the space.
Inspired by contemporary art galleries, the form is defined by the quality of light, order and calmness. The floating roof reinforces the sweeping curve, while full-height glazed louvers above the shop fronts open and close in response to environmental conditions.
