    Axis Atrium

    tonystefan Dec 7 '12 0

    This mega mall is located within a residential district called Ampang, and is within walking distance to a metro station. I wanted to begin my documentation project (http://archinect.com/blog/article/62286076/introduction) simply, and the metro station near this project is only one stop down the line from nearest station to my place. Axis Atrium serves as a good example of what I find unique in the mega-malls here: it's an ambitious project, massive in scale, and stands in stark contrast to its immediate surroundings.

    Axis Atrium contains over 700 condominium units, 3-4 stories of parking (both private and public), and sits over a 2 story mall. The building is approximately 450 feet long on its longest edge, and the taller tower, built over a 7 story base, is 31 stories tall. Notice the townhouse roofline on top of the base on the left side.
