Eastland’s Town Square has been named as the best shopping centre exterior in South East Asia and the Pacific 2019, in the prestigious Prix Versailles architecture awards for its extraordinary design.
The Prix Versailles promotes design and architecture as tools for sustainable development across cultural, social and ecological spheres, with judges spanning from across sectors of architecture, art, politics, fashion, food, philosophy and beyond.
Designed by London’s Acme and Melbourne’s Buchan Group the $665m transformation of Eastland shopping centre is one of the world’s best examples of commercial architecture. The building’s Town Square civic and restaurant precinct has been noted by international judges with its impressive circular glass-enclosed pavilion as the main entrance and stand-out feature, named ‘the shard.’
It’s a great example of a retail precinct that encourages connection and discovery.
Prolux have been part of the award winning design with the installation of the new outdoor lighting and heating to the stylish mirrored canopies.
The world title global awards are unveiled at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris in September, with Eastland noted as a worthy contender.
