The Centra Mall is located in the Industrial Sector and a high accessibility area with excellent linkages from the airport, railway station and the residential and institutional areas of the city. The design intent for the mall has two predominant aspects viz. the socio-cultural aspect and the environmental strategy. The approach has been to reverse the traditional box-type morphology for malls by opening up the box instead, towards the site context and surroundings. An atrium along the premium road access helps to attain the public disposition, whilst maintaining the mall typology. The retail shops and the entertainment block face the atrium and its transparent nature allows visibility of all the shops from the road. The building is oriented along North-South to optimize the built form orientation with glazing predominantly restricted to the North side.
