Site update: Metal framework of Dolmen Mall taking shape in Lahore

New images and footage show the current status of the construction programme at the Dolmen Mall site in Lahore, Pakistan.

The building’s metal framing has starting taking shape, with structural and masonry work now well under way.

A 73,000m2 GLA luxury shopping centre located within the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) grounds in Lahore, Dolmen Mall will offer three levels of shopping, a food court on the upper floor, a hypermarket on the ground floor and two levels of basement parking for 2,000 cars.

The design uses traditional Islamic patterns on glazed surfaces, employing geometrical shapes to stunning effect.

The context-appropriate façade makes use of subtle pastel colours and textures which complement the scheme’s landscaping, while a striking feature roof ‘drapes’ over the building, creating a wave-like canopy to emphasise the entrances.

Dolmen Mall was designed by Chapman Taylor’s Brussels studio for Dolmen Group, with construction by IZHAR Construction (Pvt) Ltd.

With the building’s metal framing taking shape, and structural and masonry work now well under way, the new footage cleverly shows the relationship of the current site view with the design vision towards which the construction programme is moving.
