• Century City Mall in Makati Officially Opened

    8 April 2014

    Award winning eco-architect Jason Pomeroy of Pomeroy Studio, was in Makati on 27 March to celebrate the launch of leading developer Century Properties’ flagship lifestyle and retail destination, Century City Mall.

    CENTURY CITY MALL 01The Mall designed by Pomeroy, prior to establishing Pomeroy Studio, was the venue for a lavish gala celebration. The architecture seeks to challenge the ‘business as usual’ energy and water intensive mall typology by going back to basics.

    CENTURY CITY MALL 02The 22,000 m2 mall is characterised by its shell-like structure that seamlessly forms the wall and roof and protects the interior of the mall from the tropical rain and sun. The internal spatial organisation is structured along 19th century arcade principles, whereby a public thoroughfare provides a passage through Century City. It further seeks to optimize the penetration of natural light and ventilation through a series of skylights and air wells.

    The environmental and social responsiveness is also enhanced by a series of stepped sky courts that form external terraces to provide destination food and beverage areas.

    Pomeroy stated: “I’m delighted to have been invited to this special event and to see Century City Mall materialise from concept sketch to reality. I am hugely grateful to Marco Antonio and Century Properties for both their faith and commitment to progressive and sustainable architecture.”

    Marco Antonio, acting Chief Operating Officer of Century Properties tweeted: “Wanted to give a special thank you to the country’s #1 event director, Robby Carmona, for last night’s flawless festivities and architect Jason Pomeroy who we collaborated closely with to bring the vision of Century City Mall into reality.”
