Benoy wins 2022 BCI Asia Interior Design Award

We are pleased to announce that Benoy project, Seazen Suzhou Wuyue Plaza, located in Suzhou, China, has been awarded the 2022 BCI Asia Interior Design Awards for the Large Category”. 

Celebrating 17 years of building and design leadership, BCI Asia Awards is one of the most coveted awards in the regional building and construction industry. The BCI Asia Interior Design Awards (IDA) 2022 reviews interior design projects based on how well a specific interior space is designed by size: SMALL (S): maximum 300 square metres; MEDIUM (M): between 301 and 1,000 square metres; LARGE (L): above 1,001 square metres.

Led by Gregory Kovacs, Design Director, Seazen Suzhou Wuyue Plaza is a retail destination owned and developed by Seazen (formally Future Land), situated at the heart of the city center surrounding the North Suzhou High Speed Railway Station. Benoy designed the interiors for the 6‑story shopping mall, executing 2 contrasting yet complementary principles for the top and lower floors. 

Marco Polo proclaimed Suzhou the​“Venice of the East” and was a center of business and commerce in China with its Grand Canal. Our vision was to take the famous Suzhou culture and create an authentic, contemporary reinterpretation of it, using world-class design thinking and internationally proven techniques.

Inspired by the Chinese saying,​“Above there is heaven, below there are Suzhou and Hangzhou”, we created a dichotomy within the mall to generate dynamics and dialogues between the​“heavenly” retail indoor street on the top floor illuminated by skylights, and the striking, contemporary retail floors below.

In the following video, Gregory Kovacs walks us through the highlights of the multi-award winning project.
