When progressing through the proposed centre, it reveals the new revival of traditional and colonial architecture in Jonker Street.

The contemporary design of proposed centre displays the new interpretation of Melaka’s traditional architecture that integrates local materials and new technologies without losing the key essence of the traditional Malaccan architecture.
