Porto De Phuket is the First Open Air Lifestyle Mall in the Southern of Thailand. This project gives precedence to the integration of interior, architecture and natural landscape spaces. Mesmerizing by Phuket’s unique landscape settings and the site’s abundant existing trees, landscape architect pays respect to existing site condition and preserved over 240 trees on the site. In planning, Phuket local fishing village is used as inspiration to form the building groups which integrate with variety of green open spaces. These green areas are spread throughout the site offering multi-purpose programs, relaxation spaces and promoting ecological function of natural run-off areas. Moreover, the team interprets Phuket’s natural landscape characters into the contemporary design language that harmoniously correspond with the Architecture style, promoting identity of the project and the site.The visitors will gain comfortable outdoor experience that supports the lifestyle of new normal situation.
Unlike the typical mall design that cherishes large enclosed interior spaces, this project’s vision is different. By giving value to its location and surrounding natures. To promote the finest outdoor living experience to the visitors and cherish Phuket’s cultural identity.Thanks to the collaboration with architects and clients, this project could save over 240 native existing trees on the site and able to offers over 70% of open spaces with overall green space (impervious surface) which is 32% from the project total area.
Landscape architect team feels mesmerized by the surrounded natural settings and the stunning views of the mountains. The triangular iconic landform, that abstracts the original form of Phuket’s Plateau, becomes a landmark of the project. Low stories buildings are groups to form the landscape spaces, providing more functions than just only leftover spaces between the buildings. Each of the buildings are connected by covered walkway to protect the visitors from the sun and rain and also promote the linkage between the group of the buildings. The mall area is located in the middle of the site surrounded by parking lots that allow convenient access to the mall from all directions.
The major element of the outdoor spaces is paving areas, paving is designed to interpenetrate into the green spaces that harmoniously blur the edge of hardscape and softscape and allow water runoff absorbing. There are variety scale of the walking spaces which are extend wider to facilitated the events or pop-up stores, some areas are providing resting spots for visitor to relax and enjoy being in nature. Also, some of the green spaces are connected with the interior design of the restaurant offering comfortable outdoor dining experiences.
种植的概念是保护现有的当地树木，如棕檀(Acacia mangium wild .)。通过只添加一种当地的树，帕拉橡胶树。(巴西橡胶树。)，保持泥炭沼泽森林的自然景观氛围。景观团队还设计了天然池塘，以帮助在大雨中恢复水分，并让水自然渗入地面。在这个池塘里，游客们享受着被热带沼泽森林植物包围的休息场所。
The planting concept is to preserve the existing local trees such as Brown salwood (Acacia mangium Willd.). By adding only one type of another local tree, Para rubber tree. (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.) and remain natural landscape atmosphere of peat swamp forest. The landscape team also designs natural pond to help restore water during heavy rain and allow water to naturally infiltrate into the ground. At this pond, the visitors enjoy resting spots surrounded by tropical swamp forest plants.
