1. I have a site of 4290sq mt and the population of the surronding area is 4 lacs plus aprox so how do i calculate parking space for cars and number of cars which should be parked.

2. According to population how do i calculate the no. of shops for a particular topic for example (how many shops for clothing,accessories,food shops,services etc

For the number of shops permitted, you will have to see byelaws for that area. FAR (Floor Area Ratio) should not be exceeded. Then according to the area of the construction, find out the ECS (Equivalent car parking space) by the byelaws of the same region. If ECS is 2, it means 2 car parks should be provided for every 100 sq.m of construction.

Hi Mayank,

read your post. are you an interior designer or an architect.  I am looking for sample architectural designs of interior layouts of shopping centers.  Im sorry i have hardly any experience in mall design, but i have to prepare a study for my boss and i have been looking over the the net for days now without any luck.  The sample itself will not be used, i need just to include in my study as a sample, of how a shopping centre interior should be designed.  The Mall in question should be two stories with a total floor space of approx. 4,000 sqm.  Its should also include parking for approx. 300 - 500 vehicles.  I really appreciate any help you can give in how i can find such sample, as Im really running out of time and really need to do a good job on this one.  

Thanks in advance.

Doshka
