The aim of the Design Manual was to create an enjoyable, appealing and commercially-viable environment, unify Tripla’s different elements and to integrate the interior into the building’s overall architecture.

Restaurants play a key role in Mall of Tripla. The restaurant concept has been structured so that different operators and business ideas are compatible with consumers’ needs and customer rotation and ensure that suitable tenants lease the available restaurant space. Mall of Tripla combines trendy indie operators, delicatessens and popular mega brands. The concept outlines how dining services will dovetail with the operations of the urban center and ensure that supply meets demand for all businesses at all times. The strategy was developed in partnership with Soupster Ltd and YIT.
