WINGSTOP @ CITY SQUARE MALL SINGAPORE
Size: 130 sqm
Status: Completed 2014
Inspired by grand spaces of the aeroplane hangars, with its curving ribs that enclose the space, the design seeks to create a comfortable seating area where one feels sheltered and protected by a structure that covers them. In addition the curved ribs are moulded into a fluid form that gives it a sense of motion and flight. Timber and steel elements are used generously to create a warm and casual industrial atmosphere. Hand painted graphics and words on the floor, columns and walls add a layer of natural authenticity. A large communal table in the centre creates a strong emphasis to the space, akin to the aeroplanes that occupy the hangar space.
