Lifescapes International Creates Indoor Oasis at Robinsons Galleria in Cebu, Philippines

Julie Brinkerhoff -Jacobs

CEBU, Philippine -- Lifescapes International, the landscape architectural firm behind iconic retail centers such as The Grove in Los Angeles and Pacific City in Huntington Beach, has completed the landscape design of Robinsons Galleria, a multimillion dollar, multi-story shopping destination located within a 380,485 square-meter mixed-use development in Cebu, Philippines.

The design, which features unique elements such as a bubble wall with LED lighting and a 25-foot flower guitar (erected for the center’s Grand Opening, and due to its popularity, is still installed), captures the destination feel of an outdoor oasis, but brings it entirely indoors.

“Retail owners continue to seek new ways to deliver immersive experiences that attract repeat visitors,” says Julie Brinkerhoff-Jacobs, President of Lifescapes International.  “Our strategy was to deliver an environment that visitors can get ‘lost in’ and enjoy with friends and family time and time again.”

To achieve this, Lifescapes created a variety of lush gardens that will flourish year-round on each level of the center, including the underground parking structure.

  In addition, elements such as the aforementioned bubble wall and multi-purpose screens will create a constant stream of visual stimulation.

“This approach strategically differentiates Robinsons Galleria from its competitors, resulting in an all-encompassing, entertainment-driven destination where guests can shop, dine, and socialize, all in one enclosed environment,” says Brinkerhoff-Jacobs.

 “The challenge with this project was overcoming the high temperatures and humidity in the local market,” she continues.  “The project owners were visionary in their desire to transport guests to a paradise destination that is also fully enclosed and air conditioned.”
