Funan Mall

Funan Mall
The architectural centrepiece of Funan, Tree of Life, provides a visual focus for retail to showcase their brands and products

The project site is an integral part of Singapore’s Civic District, an area that is undergoing rejuvenation to further enhance its vibrancy as a thriving cultural and lifestyle precinct. To create a mixed-use retail environment, the design team has created a live-work-play lifestyle centre that fosters connections with its users through lively social and cultural activities in an inviting public space. Funan carries an array of programmes such as retail; offices; co-living serviced residences; black box theatre; fitness gym and pool; rock-climbing wall; a cycle path; cinemas; as well as an urban farm. A 50-lane indoor climbing wall extends from basement two to level two, with the highest climb at 15 metres.

The Tree of Life is the welcoming centrepiece design that creates a visual focus within the retail loop; a physical manifestation of the spirit to foster upcoming brands. Extending from basement two to level four, the multifaceted steel structure seeks to promote new forms of retail and entrepreneurship culture, as well as experimentation and social learning. To allow for maximum versatility in the floor plan, it uses flexible partitions to cater to programmatic changes. Fixtures systems adopt an industrial design with exposed steel structures and mesh balustrades enlivened by greenery.
