The brief for this project was to design a high end retail mall for the thriving city of Muscat. The design of the mall is to reflect the natural surroundings of Oman without being too local in nature. The clientele of the malls will be international since the mall is situated below a large apartment and hotel complex. The mall will feature a range of middle to luxury retail brands, which will be housed within a wide offering of F&B, including food court outlets, cafes and restaurants. Signature attractions will include water features, coral walls, full height sculptures and alluring design features.
In addition to the design scope, MDI created a visual walk through for the mall management to assist in attracting new tenants, as well as the development of the mall operational handbook and tenant guidelines.
