Located at the prime area of Hengqin, Zhuhai, the site covers a total GFA of over 2 million sqm. This large scale mixed use development comprises Retail, F&B, Office, Hotel and Cultural & Civic facilities will further contribute to the economic growth within Pearl River Delta area upon completion.
Our design vision evolve around the major anchor, an ‘experience central square’ which marks the nexus of the river and mountain geometries that surround the site. This large central hub becomes the active heart of the masterplan unifying 4 neighbourhoods and provides a vibrant retail and cultural destination
“In addition to the ‘Experience Central Square’, the energy of the city centre is ignited by the diverse mix of amenities including the Central Green Belt – Wanxiang Avenue, Retail Axis, Waterfront Promenade, National Pavilions, Expo and Convention Centre,” explained Miriam Au Yeung, Project Director and Partner at 10 DESIGN.
Givens added, “Sustainable design is a key driver for the master plan design. The first concept is to minimise the energy requirements through simple passive solar principles. Another goal is to reduce the reflectance and light pollution generated by the project through maximising the solid areas of the tower façades. With the proximity to the river, treating the storm water run-off through bio swales and abundant garden spaces is also very critical to achieving an eco-responsible design.”
