Shopping malls were a relatively new phenomenon in India when UB City was designed. Bentel’s expertise in retail design and construction was therefore highly valued in the Indian market. UB City is an 88 000 m² mixed-use development in the commercial IT centre of Bangalore.
It has 15 000 m² of high end retail space, with the interiors being designed in a Tuscan Italianate vernacular style. A central court ties different areas and architectural styles together. The open-air square is a social space where people from various office buildings can congregate. The cosmopolitan design expresses a culturally sensitive aesthetic reflective of the affluent individuals of the area.
