ONE of Malaysia’s favourite bookstores, BookXcess is making a grand entrance in MyTOWN Shopping Centre, promising an outrageously unconventional experience to its customers.
For its 13th outlet, BookXcess is providing a one-of-a-kind experiential space that’s both contemporary and imaginative, designed to elicit surprises at every turn.
The books available are displayed on towering shelves built on stone pathways with an ingeniously designed two-level piazza that invites customers to take a break and chill while enjoying the view of the city skyline.
And the best part is that it is also a unique space that also doubles up as a co-working space.
Not only that, this particular outlet is also the only bookstore that has a Japanese restaurant and a coffee bar residing within it, namely the Ume Tei Japanese restaurant that serves authentic Okinawa cuisine and Whisk Coffee Bar & Cakes that offers delicious cakes, coffee and tea.
Designed for a quick pick-me-up and respite from browsing for books, both the outlets are the perfect ‘pit-stops’ to energise those who may wish to whet their appetite or just pause, to rest and ponder for a moment.
Artsy decor, hand-painted mini mouse characters on the walls, a piano and a unique art piece in the form of a life-sized baby Elephant Parade statue, add a touch of quirkiness and creativity to the overall aesthetics of the retail space.
To add a unique twist to the overall experience, one will find a ‘hidden gem’ amidst the books in the form of a specially built passageway.
Ingeniously curated located underneath the Piazza is an art space that aims to promote specially commissioned artworks by several local artists that are also available for purchase at very affordable prices. – Oct 13, 2021
