Mandalay Recreational Centre

Architecture, Concept, Master Planning & Design 2014

Type Public, Commercial 
Location Mandalay, Myanmar

Amarapura was commissioned to complete a feasibility review on a site to be developed into a recreational facility in central Mandalay. Following this exercise, we were appointed to carry out all architectural and interior design, concept and master planning services for a new recreational centre on the selected site. The services included facilities planning, schematic layouts, development phasing and scheduling. In this commission we were to incorporate amenities and facilities including a go-kart ring, a go-kart store for servicing and merchandising, an ice-skating ring, fast food outlets and public areas. Consideration was to be given to the demographics, cost and standard of living and factoring the complex interplay between urban ecologies, social-economic forces and community acceptance.
