Cariloha Bamboo at Mandalay Place is a nationally based retail specialty store which sells only bamboo based products. The product lines range from bed and bath linens to clothing and housewares – all from naturally sustainable bamboo. To keep with the rainforest/babmoo theme, the store features bamboo flooring, palm frond ceiling fans and a limited color palette of bamboo tan and bamboo leaf green. The bamboo appliques on the storefront glazing give the illusion of walking into a bamboo forest. Video monitors throughout the store tell the story of the sustainable aspects of bamboo and its inherent qualities and strengths. The store was designed, permitted and constructed through the design/build delivery process where SHARCHITECTURE was responsible for the architectural components and drawings as well as the approval process through the mall owner and the county.
