Design Philosophy & Aesthetics

God’s own country offers many elements of nature and culture which could be used as motifs and art forms in the development of building décor. Reflecting native traditions and splendid landscapes, the mall becomes a tapestry of luxury, seamlessly weaving these elements from exterior to interior; in a harmonious blend of green and gold, celebrating two of Kerala’s most cherished elements. An abstract evolution of the palm leaf motif adorns the façade, capturing attention with its striking presence, complemented by dramatic evening illuminations that leave a lasting impression on passersby.

Stepping inside, the interior decor echoes the region’s rich heritage, drawing from the intricate charm of the Kasavu saree. The atriums and corridors embrace simplicity with a white canvas accented by golden bulkheads reminiscent of the saree’s elegant embellishment. The marriage of white, gold, and palm leaf motifs in key pause areas exudes opulence and detail, enhancing the charm of merchandise displays.

The jewel in the centre’s crown, the Food Court, transports visitors to a bygone era of Portuguese architectural grandeur prevalent in historic Kochi. The Portuguese tilework, known as Azulejos, graces the space in abstract interpretations, intertwining traditional and modern designs to evoke a sense of heritage reminiscent of Fort Kochi. Leaf motifs cascade from the ceiling, extending through chandeliers, uniting each space under a harmonious design language. Together, these features create captivating backdrops worthy of Instaframes, inviting all to immerse themselves in an experience where art, culture, and luxury converge.
