Happy Mall is a open concept shopping center with a 80,000 sqm construction area. Additionally, a Macalline Store is located next to the mall, linked to the complex . The area will be a must for those who aim to discover the trends in the field of home decoration and create differences in living areas. he conceptual theme is based on creating joyful inner courtyards with landscape elements, reflection pools, and canopies. While breaking the horizontality, the vertical canopies are used as an advantage, providing climate control for all seasons, from sun shading to rain blocking. The facade is designed by a single module, a box, used iteratively in order to create a more complex effect.
