Paragon City, located in Semarang, Central Java, is a mixed-use development comprising a 7-storey 75,000 sqm retail mall, a 220 bedroom 4-star hotel and a convention centre. The mall contains a basement hyper market; boutique, branded and anchor stores; and a 10-theatre cineplex. The façade of the mall is expressed as a pleated skirt as an abstracted motif of the Client’s position as a leading regional manufacturer of garments. The hotel and convention centre sit on top of the podium and is expressed as a separate floating element that has a faceted glass skin, giving it a different identity to the podium’s pleated façade.
