Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China
Our design concept for this uniquely located sub-district is centered upon the integration of artistry, creativity, culture, and community. Located adjacent to an international sculpture park and an art institute, this sub-district is also being bound by roads on the east, west, and south sides. Located south of Downtown Hangzhou, this project had several critical design program elements to be included within this very tight urban space . Our design program included 84,000 m2 of total built space. It was broken down into SOHO Apartments, Premier Retail Shops, Anchor Retail Stores, and an Apartment Hotel, with public parking, bike parking, and several identifiable outdoor public spaces. The site is also served on its southeast corner by Line 4 of the Hangzhou Subway thereby connecting it directly into Hangzhou’s central core.
