Challenge

Building a unique commercial space for Lujiazui’s Harbour City, Benoy was set the challenge of incorporating the area’s riverside culture and landscape zone with other plots. Gala Avenue needed to not only meet the basic needs of daily business functions, retail and leisure activities, but also provide an impressive development that reflects the historical context and innovative design styles. 

Solution

We blended contemporary and aged materials whilst practising modern and traditional construction methods. This technique developed a rich, layered palette and various points of interest throughout the space, where Shanghai’s historic elements peacefully coexist with the future, providing unique experiences for people to work, shop and relax.

Result

Expected to open Q4 2019.
