"Professional Architect lives almost by faith. When called upon he can do the job without fear or favour. He possesses aspecialized skill and lives by a code of ethics cloaked in honour andintegrity. He is expected to speak his mind and give his views. Whenfaced with absolute wrong, he can resolutely disagree and walk away." quote from THE PROFESSIONAL MAN by Ar Dr Tan Loke Mun PRESIDENT PAM

This post is a continuation of series of my previous 3d visualization and design that I did for a simple design Retail Park.





The whole design proposal includes several new units located in existing development. There are units to be re-furbished, extended and even some new units to be added and built. The vast variety in the development stage gives the project a unique experience.

One of the precious knowledge I gained while working on this project is how we need to advise the client in re-structuring their development which meets the demand for expansion. The process involves relocating existing tenants in the right sequence so that all the business in the existing retail park can operate their business as usual despite the new development work progressing on site just like putting all the jig-saw pieces together.

It is also important to show the existing tenants the exact visual on how the future development will not leave a negative impact on them but increase their profitability and interest. For example the proposed development will be kept out from blocking their customers view.

This project may not be an extravagant piece of architecture but the process involved has provide me an awareness on turning a tight budget proposal into a profitable architecture. RGP have an innovative approach to architectural design. We have no dogma, no standard answers and we are spirited and fun to work with.
