MALL PLAZA LOS DOMINICOS
ABOUT THE PROJECT
As Mall Plaza’s flagship property, Plaza Los Dominicos represents a complex synthesis of outdoor entertainment and shopping destinations within a three-level enclosed mall. As a project with significant community impact, tvsdesign sought to create a unique experience. The space features small shops, mini-anchors and department stores, the facility culminates with a cinema, 13 tenant food court and arcade on the top level. The project is striving for LEED® Silver Certification. Below the mall are civic destinations, a hypermarket and a home store, layered with accessible parking.
THE CHALLENGE WAS ALWAYS TO DESIGN MORE THAN JUST A BUILDING. WE NEEDED TO CREATE AN EXPERIENCE
DESIGN GOALS, STRATEGY & RESULTS
The mission of the architecture was to create dynamic spatial and visual qualities that define the soul and spirit of the place. The façade is active, with a sense of energy and movement, and it was crucial that the space open to create synergy with nature and the community. Rather than making multiple trips to several, single function facilities, this layering allows for a single destination plaza to serve the needs of a growing population, all within close proximity to public transportation. Using multiple shades and textures of stone and glass with lush landscaping and elegant, sinuous forms, the design of Plaza Los Dominicos reflects a sophisticated and cultured shopper with an eye to high design.
