Crystal Design Center (CDC)
The Crystal Design Centre is a new lifestyle concept and creative hub that combines entertainment with the latest design trends from around the world. This creative centre, designed by world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp (design worldwide partnership) sets the benchmark for Asia's creative industry. dwp tackled, head on, the unique challenge of creating a facility that lastingly enhances design products and services housed within the centre, yet not overtly compete with them.

dwp achieved this balance via true design excellence with spaces transformed through the use of organic shapes, specialist lighting, and the use of recognised signature design products. The resulting organic structure extrudes from first floor through three levels to plateau at the centre's apex, where luxurious lounges, ballrooms, meeting rooms and a library are all located. The continuous and amorphous nature of the centre's core is carried through to the intricately designed library and each of the eight meeting rooms, where walls and ceilings curve and flow in one fluid form.

Key design leaders have also been acknowledged, within the design, with iconic furniture and styling defining different areas. This permits CDC users to choose their preferred location to work or congregate in, so as to feel the direct impact design can have on any space.
