The new Ocean Terminal Extension is a new signature retail mall situated at the tip of the famous Ocean Terminal Shopping mall at Harbour City. Jutting out into the Victoria Harbour, the mall provides premium retail and F&B spaces with spectacular sea views. ARK was appointed as the interior designer to the project to work in collaboration with Foster + Partners as the design architects.
ARK provided interior designs for both the shopping mall as well as the transportation terminal. As a new extension building, it needed to operate as a cruise terminal at the same time. Hence, the lower floor is a fully operational terminus with immigration and customs facilities etc. whilst the top floors provide shopping and F&B space.
ARK design approach was to provide an interior design that complements the architecture of Foster + Partners. Hence, the interior design takes inspiration from forms, finishes and colour from ships and ocean liners. Form and choice of materials are kept slick and stream line. White colour is extensively used to maintain an airy feeling of the space while dark grey glass, stainless steel and flooring is introduced to give the space a contrasting punch.
