The Atrium entrance links to a boutique hotel, restaurants, clubs, a spa centre and flagship stores, all under an over-arching solarium that provides shade to the Hotel and the Atrium. Design studios and a Fashion Catwalk radiate from the Atrium and are all housed under leaf-like roof forms. The surrounding pond on the northern perimeter captures rain runoff from the roof, draws in the prevailing wind and uses this as a passive cooling device for the complex.
Architecture van Brandenburg began the design process for the Marisfrolg Headquarters in Shenzhen, China in 2008. The complex is 120,000m2 set in a 4.5 ha garden.
