Getting creative with Funan
It has been a busy couple on months as we go deep into the conceptual design phase of Funan Mall – the new social, creative and inspiring hub of Singapore.
Developed by CapitaLand Mall Trust, and working in collaboration with Woods Bagot, Funan Mall is a new destination for living, working and playing in Singapore’s city centre.
Funan will offer a multifaceted experience, incorporating community, connectivity and convenience. An aspirational, experiential and always evolving space that fosters collaboration, sparking inspiration and discovery.
The resulting new development scheme includes a unique program comprising three office and residential towers, with a six-storey retail, dining and lifestyle podium connecting the towers at the base. Aimed at appealing to tech-and socially-savvy consumers, the design of the mall presents a creative environment with distinctive fashion and lifestyle offerings for a one-of-a-kind experience that utilises technology every step of the way.
Funan will promote not only the technological but also physical connectivity through a porous and pedestrian-friendly design, drawing traffic from the outside via a series of strategic design moves, such as allowing cycling via integrated bike paths and multiple access points; a first for Singapore.
THERE have been enlisted to handle all wayfinding, signage, environmental graphics and placemaking for this ground-breaking development. We are excited at the direction the work is taking and look forward to sharing further updates with you as the project progresses.
