The landscape design for a modern shopping center must create an exciting environment and theme. At the same time, the design must encourage the shoppers to visit the stores and move throughout the center. TC&M’s landscape designs for many award-winning shopping centers and commercial projects recognize the importance of an attractive and exciting environment which frames and enhances the many retail projects.
The Queen Kaahumanu Center is Maui’s largest retail and entertainment center. The regional mall features a mix of more than 100 stores, restaurants, theatres and services. TC&M worked closely with the architect and management to develop an attractive, yet maintainable, softscape design for the center’s mall and parking areas
TC&M is the landscape architect for both the original construction and recent expansion of this award winning resort shopping center. The hardscape design features efficient circulation while incorporating Hawaiian artifacts within the softscape planting. The design responds to the strong winds and hot conditions of the resort’s location on the Kohala coast of the island.
TC&M was the landscape architect for the first major renovation of Honolulu’s premier shopping center. Working closely with the architect and the structural engineer a combination of built-in and movable planters were designed for all of the public spaces within the mall and throughout the parking areas.
