G8A’s first project for the infamous Pizza 4ps group proposes a mystical experience, transplanting an eerie forest ambiance into the stark mall context. By transporting the user into a highly organic and tactile space, the project questions the artificiality of these shopping environments. The open plan is segmented by a variety of columns crafted of recycled wood.

G8A’s first project for the infamous Pizza 4ps group proposes a mystical experience, transplanting an eerie forest ambiance into the stark mall context. By transporting the user into a highly organic and tactile space, the project questions the artificiality of these shopping environments. The open plan is segmented by a variety of columns crafted of recycled wood. These column “trees” reintroduce curved and imprecise movements, common in natural environments, into the dense and consumerist space.

This effect of surprise and rediscovery is encouraged by ambient lighting the sparkling carpet of tiles composed from repurposed plates, drawing the user further into the atmosphere of mystery. An intimate sense of place is created in nooks and shared seating arrangements, guests always close to an organic surface.

Both interior and exterior façade have gentle transitions, large bay windows and barrier-free limitations create a sense of smooth passageways into the spaces’ atmosphere. This blurring of lines and limitations further demonstrates the organic nature of the project, where movement is continuous and fluid rather than rigid and harsh.
