Following a clear brief – to create the best furniture and interiors mall in China – an innovative hub offering a one stop service for all high end interior fit outs was conceived. Fulfilling the needs of important customers seeking quality brands and state of the art products, a large curved mall building was envisioned. The plot Is divided into two parts on a sloped site; the structure was inspired by the waves of the ocean (which lies nearby), whilst smaller individual units were arranged to its side echoing sea water splashing on the rocks. Thus, dynamic circulation is improved throughout the areas, allowing flexibility for leasing the units.
A memorable aesthetic is created via curved forms that offer a wide angle view for attracting customers to each brand’s location. A juxtaposed layout on the lower part enables internal streets to divide the space, also offering social spots and leisure areas.
