Located in the town of Sant’Agata li Battiati in Sicily, Il Mandarin is a planned mixed-use, hillside ‘village’ characterized by active sidewalk shopping and public plazas for dining and relaxation. The environment is enhanced by contemporary architectural design as well as traditional Mediterranean style. The first of its kind in Sicily, Il Mandarin will feature the high-end retailers of Rome and Milan, restaurants, cafes and professional offices. Together with residential villas, and a boutique five-star hotel and spa, these elements combine to create a unique and dynamic environment.
Arrowstreet developed a comprehensive marketing and concept book to aide the developer in discussions with potential investors and tenants. All aspects of the book were designed and produced in-house from the branding and identity to the development of custom maps and renderings. The finished books were handmade with custom book cloth covers and silk-screened elements to evoke the luxuriousness that Il Mandarin promises.
