Central to the experience of the proposal is the flowing movement of the pavement and space layout through the heart of the outlet centre. In some areas of the outlet area the paths are narrow, in other areas they a zone of luxuriant forest can be inte¬grated with wild plantation. Some areas can have wild honeysuckle and ferns while other areas in the zone along the path consists of a theme of wetlands with trees in a water mirrors. On a late summer’s night you can walk through grass fields and starlight or on an early morning see the mist rising from the water ponds.
The wild character of the different plantations and water increases the bio diversity of the outlet area where all kinds of organisms can thrive; humans, birds and insects. In selected areas you can walk up over the edge to an open common with closely cropped grass that can be used for picnics, sunbathing on the grass or general enjoyment in the cool shade of the various trees, simply take a rest, read the paper or just observe the ever changing life in the Patio. In another part of the Patio there will be a stage area with chairs, tables and benches where concerts or other per¬formances can be held on a permanent stage.
Like this the outlet area becomes a varied space where you can be active and participating but also passive and observing. The area can also be used as a market place, a place to hang out, as a café area or just for general leisure.
An immediate urban environment will be activated and integrated into the outlet area as a bridge to the surroundings and shopping mall.
In the open areas will a water feature be used to infiltrate the rainwater from surfaces and roofs.
The Outlet area is ideal for both adventures and relaxation whether you come to explore the exciting universe of sound and light or just prefer to lie in the soft grass and enjoy the sun and the sizzling life surrounding you. The overall characteristics of the outlet landscape consists of the many different organized spaces that appeal to human senses and contains general qualities that we enjoy in nature: weather change, surprise, heightened awareness of transition and movement etc.
