Great News! Xiaomeisha Transport Center has been announced a winner of the ICONIC AWARDS 2021: Innovative Architecture Selection, in the Public / Culture / Education architecture category.
The overall renovation of Shenzhen Xiaomeisha by Shenzhen SDG Co., Ltd. will probe into new ways of oceanside development, balancing the allocation of land and seaside in an overall effort of improvement and upgrade. With inadequate transportation infrastructure and a chaotic mix of vehicular and pedestrian zones, the current tourist experience requires improvement, especially during peak traffic hours. The new TOD design aims to solve these issues.
CLOU’s concept is to place public space at the heart of this multi-modal transport center. A vehicle-free zone in the middle gives tourists a clear visual connection between the different transport modes: public transportation, private cars, tour buses, and shuttle bus to the greater Xiaomeisha area. The roof above the bus station doubles up as an elevated park that connects the two main natural attractions of the area: the mountains and the beach.
