Addaset resin bound surfacing was the product of choice for the pedestrian walkways at this premium shopping complex near Seoul. The 175,200 sqm Lotte retail space located in Uiwang-city, offers over 240 luxury goods and sports brands and has been designed to promote nature with its soft landscaping including a nature trail and extensive birch tree planting.
The client was looking for a smooth, contemporary aggregate surface that would be durable and low maintenance but allow for creative design with the use of bespoke blends installed in organic patterns to create decorative walkways and seating areas.
Addaset resin bound porous paving was selected using complementary blends including Scandinavian Pearl, Trent and Maple Gold to create natural aggregate mixed pattern pathways leading to an inviting grassed picnic area and providing porous paving for the aqua park. The walkways link the 10 glass houses which offer shops and cafés with a view over the lake and grassland areas. With a roof that can be opened and closed as required, this is an all weather shopping experience.
The 1,563 sqm resin bound installation was carried out over 2 months and was completed in September 2021 ready for the grand opening.
