In contrast to most of the shopping center which are indoor with a big atrium, numerous shops in this shopping center are outdoor. There is no clear demarcation of indoor and outdoor zone, instead, the design provides a continuous flow of shopping space from entrance up to 3F by staircase and escalators. A mix of different size of shops/restaurants are located either facing the internal outdoor atrium or towards the main street.
