10 Design designed China Resources’ new mixed-use development – Sungang MixC Market Hall. The project is currently under construction in Shenzhen, China with an anticipated completion by Q3 2022. Located on a former industrial zone, this retail-gastronomy destination will provide an immersive gastronomic experience under one roof. Discover more after the jump.
From the architects: 10 DESIGN Chief Operating Officer, Miriam Auyeung commented: “The site used to accommodate a warehouse within the old industrial district of Sungang and will soon be converted into a new CBD. MixC Market Hall is aimed to create a lifestyle complex around food and dining. The complex will mark an important milestone for the ongoing transformation of Sungang, acting as a catalyst to drive urban regeneration in the area.”
MixC Market Hall will accommodate 78,890sqm of retail and F&B dining space, with two office towers above providing 102,320sqm of workspace.
As part of the regeneration of the district, the overall masterplan will also include residential and serviced apartment towers, resettlement housing, and public amenities, providing a holistic redevelopment.
Jointly led by two Design Partners, Ted Givens and Chin Yong Ng, the concept for this new development is to break away from the conventional shopping mall design and instead draw inspiration from a more traditional market square, creating a central meeting place for public enjoyment.
From the studio’s experience of designing world class public spaces, 10 DESIGN understands the need to provide a range of spaces which relate to the human scale. This is why the studio has created a series of spaces at different scales all interconnected.
The frontage of MixC Market Hall is marked by a stainless steel sculptural canopy which leads to a pedestrianised retail street, creating a new and dynamic boulevard for shoppers and diners to enjoy. The retail street is punctuated with the market hall entrance – the jewel of the landmark. It is animated by three floating box-shaped structures, the design of which is inspired by food truck containers. This will create a unique spatial experience to be discovered and explored, providing a richness of dining and other gastronomic experiences.
MixC Market Hall will offer products made by local and international artisans, food-oriented boutiques, chic restaurants, specialty coffee shops, food halls, as well as interactive offerings such as cooking classes and chef demonstrations. The market hall will also benefit from a rich mix of arts, culture, and entertainment spaces.
