Aedas-designed Link CentralWalk was awarded Winner under RLI International Shopping Centre – Renovation category at this year’s Global RLI Awards.
Located in the Futian CBD area of Shenzhen sitting on the central axis of the district, Link CentralWalk is surrounded by a network of financial institutions, civic and retail centres and convenient transportation. After decades of rapid development, it was in need of renovation and Aedas has taken up the enhancement work.
The plan is chiefly about strengthening indoor-outdoor relationship, improving connectivity and circulation, and to increase commercial value for every retailer through strategical planning, interior and façade makeover as well as landscape upgrade.
Positioned as an “urban paradise on the central axis of Futian”, the project provides a sensory journey where visitors could immerse themselves in a “slow space” and four seasons themed areas.
CentralWalk makes for an ideal locale for social activities as well as relaxation.
“Designating themes of fun versus leisure, the piazzas are redesigned with increased accessibility, public seating and communal spaces perfect for alfresco dining, seasonal events, interactive art installations, leisure activities and more.
CentralWalk is a green-inspired hub that will set the new benchmark for retail architecture and urban living.” said Aedas Executive Director Ed Lam. Source and photos Courtesy of Aedas.
