The Project will be included in this year’s A+Architecture, an annual compendium of the world’s most inspiring architecture, published in partnership with Phaidon. Congratulations from CLOU to all other winners of the 2019 Architizer A+Awards! In newly-built vertical communities such as southwest Shenyang, where adequate facilities and public spaces are often lacking, neighbourhood malls have become popular meeting places. This is particularly evident where homes are small and multi-generational living is common.
The design functions as a hub, with a strong community vibe by offering a place to share quality time with friends and family in this recently built city quarter.
Terraced volumes and connecting staircases are threaded into a continuous exterior path which leads to a large rooftop deck. The walkways weave these spaces into a pedestrian network that can lend its support to the developing public domain of southwest Shenyang.
