The development utilises pockets of space located between the existing paring decks and Century Boulevard and are fashioned around the concept of a glass box as this provides the most transparent solution in dealing with the myriad of responses the context demands.

The pods were fashioned to fulfil a need to provide satellite retail space alongside the shopping centre. The design re-enforces the symmetry of the shopping centre and tries to highlight the main architectural elements, creating view corridors to the existing entrances and egresses.
