George Town World Heritage Site
Status:
Ongoing

The culturally and historically significant landmark, Chowrasta Market’s physical form is given new life. Chowrasta Market’s integrity is preserved with careful planning with integration of existing marketplace activity while sensitively adding new functions and spaces to revitalise the character and quality of the market. The design also intends to create a pioneer eco-project based on responsible and sustainable planning, aiming for GBI certification. Due to community needs and interests, public consultation and focus group studies were conducted throughout the entire design process.
