Strip malls are doggedly honest in response to their functional requirements: they are shamelessly cheap, simple to construct, convenient to use, and when their usefulness expires no one mourns their alteration. For a rundown strip mall in Scottsdale, UrbanLab’s rejuvenation strategy keeps almost everything, and adds a continuous, functional roof layer over the entire development. The new roofscape extends or “exteriorizes” the current interior space of each store. The new exterior landscape includes a pool, shaded seating and lounging, a miniature golf course, and an outdoor continuing education center and fitness center. The roofscape is a multi-use refuge for year-round business services, relaxation, social activity, and self-improvement.
