Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Suria KLCC is a shopping center at the 240-hectare (97-acre) Kuala Lumpur City Centre development, which includes the Petronas Towers. The crescent-shaped mall includes retail, dining and entertainment on six levels.
With an exterior of colorful ceramic tiles, the building reflects Malaysian culture. Entrances are marked by arrival halls flanked by decorative light masts to accommodate vehicular drop-off. The exterior arcades and canopies at street level evoke the five-foot way, the protected walkway traditionally found in shop houses. These arcades, together with a public promenade lined with trees and water features, create a destination for shoppers and visitors.
At the core of the complex is a seven-story interior center atrium, its vaulted roof 53 meters above the concourse level. A petal-shaped, glass-and-metal roof allows in natural light while offering shade in a tropical climate. The atrium hosts events ranging from performances to retail promotions. An indoor city center, it is a place to meet and relax.
