Qian’an Retail District

Masterplan and Architecture : Concept

CLIENT : Sky Ocean, China
LOCATION : Qian'an, China
TYPE : Retail and entertainment district
SIZE : 1,329,268 sq.ft / 123,493 m2

In reviewing the municipal masterplan for our client, it was clear that the proposed retail component was severely compromised in terms of access and visibility. We resolved this by moving an urban park backwards into the site, allowing the new retail and entertainment district to sit closer to the main street and the Central Business District. The retail quarter with its ribbon-like facades features a network of smaller streets providing a human scale for the visitor whilst ensuring maximum retail frontage for the developer.
