460,000m2

Challenge

Located in Hangzhou’s buzzing Gongshu district, Joy City is an expansive and stylish urban complex with 130,000sqm of retail connected to a new vibrant waterfront, three office towers and a residential tower. Enhancing the retail experience, our client’s vision was to create a one-stop destination uniting retail, dining, leisure, entertainment, culture and art altogether.

Solution

At the heart of the project, we introduced the idea of the city living room’. This vibrant, mixed-use plaza and public lounge space draws people in and encourages a relaxing, social environment. Four surrounding towers define the boundary, while multi-level retail streets channel visitors to different places of interest within the complex.

Result

Expected to open August 2018.
