We’re reinventing an iconic retail destination in Shenzhen with high-quality interiors that celebrate its brand identity and seek to improve the customer journey. Our design concept is inspired by the commercial potential of a Chinese axiom: “Where water flows, a canal will form.” Drawing on the site’s location near the Pearl River Delta, an historic nexus for trade, we’ve embraced water as a driving theme in our aesthetic, using materials and detailing that encourage the flow of visitors from one area to another.
A stream motif defines the mall’s north and south arcades, with simple fluted stone detailing and a textural GRG ceiling. Meanwhile, the boutique gallery – a home for luxury brands – features a cascade of grand-scale detailing, including chevron marble floors and stainless steel ceiling panels that mimic the texture of water. Finally, there’s a lower ground floor gallery dedicated to beauty and jewellery; the motif here is currents, with a smooth, continuous change of scale that emphasises the generosity of this open space.
While each of these spaces has its own identity, they’re unified with luxurious materials and flowing feature ceilings that create a sense of movement. With their elegant finishes and harmonious theme, the new interiors will facilitate an unforgettable customer journey.
