  • Amazingly well stocked library in the mall. Huge selection of design related books at Level 2, and also magazines in Level 1. There's also an event space for talks. Overall great atmosphere overlooking landscapes, but could provide a bit more seatings. Level 2 entrance faces a card game shop so it gets noisy at that area whenever the sliding door opens.
  • My favourite library outlet as its has many art books, is very quiet and smack in the middle of orchard. Hours just disappear whenever I'm here! Perfect hideout if you wanna escape shopping.
