LAUTOKA // FIJI
Located on the edge of Lautoka’s commercial district, Tappoo City was a project to convert a derelict property into a thriving retail hub. The compact site contains on three levels a supermarket and eight retail tenancies along with a food court and off-street parking for 28 vehicles. Careful consideration was given to the building’s relationship to the street and existing markets as well as to its environmental performance.
The aim was to create a cool, sheltered and inviting venue without the need for energy intensive plant. A cost effective and flexible structure was married to a layout that maximised visibility, vitality and after-hours security.
