Labim Mall – A Modern Addition to Patan
The intricate details in the buildings with its form and the materials always excites me as an architect. I must say the new addition to the LABIM complex is far more than exciting. It is a beautiful building with well thought material and colour use. It is a good design with the playfulness of forms with multiple entrances, alleys for seating outside and the balance of indoor and outdoor. The only thing that hit me was the insufficiency of greenery. One example would be: If real trees were planted in the alleys, the dwellers would get the natural fresh air from them, instead of the ‘metal trees’ that are being planted at the moment.
