Project name: Yinchuan Jianfa Yoyo City
Location: Yinchuan, China
The project site is located 7km south of Yinchuan city centre, adjacent to an urban express highway. The site is also attached to a valuable landscape resource – the Guan Lake park, which makes the site much more valuable. With a total of 120,000 square meters GFA, this urban mixed-use complex is a large combination of “shopping center + retail street + boutique apartments”.
Considering the land use of the surrounding area and the progress of urban development, the shopping center is sitting at the west side of Zhengyuan Street in order to act as a city icon of Yinchuan. The retail street along the east side of Guan Lake park is perfectly integrated with the green nature open spaces, hence, created the “urban vitality axis” that runs through the east and west of the site and the “community life axis” that runs from north to south. The design introduces urban landscape resources into the site that integrates urban development with the natural landscape. The design concept of “urban symbiosis” aims to offer the city more sustainable and natural spaces for leisure and entertainment, so that people can come to enjoy, play around and relax.
