Developer: Fangyuan Investment Co , Ltd
Location: Luogang District, Guangzhou
Area: 50,000 m2
Time of Design: April 2014
It is a renovation project of the iconic plaza in Luogang Development Zone, Guangzhou. Designers associate the old mall with a neighboring new building, and integrally renovate it into a plaza twice as big as the original. The design upgrades the scale of the plaza, enabling it to regain the dominance in the business circle. The truss structure linking the two buildings plays the role of shelter from sunshine and rain, while providing a spacious public space for the mall. It also forms a gray space or atrium into which passengers are directed before branching into the two commercial buildings.
The footbridge connecting the two buildings passes through their third and fourth floors, completing the passenger routes inside the whole plaza. The façade composed of punched aluminum plates and glass curtain walls is fashionable and dynamic, which defines the commercial positioning of Huiying Plaza and consolidates its leading position in the district.
