Our landscape concept project Beijing Wangjing Hopson Kirin Place has received an Honorable Mention at Architecture Masterprize 2022.
As Kirin Place is one of the core stars of the “Star Chain” business development strategy in Beijing, our design aligns with the client’s goals and the government’s vision for the development’s key role in shaping the city’s new convergence hub for global business. Our focus on the environment, culture, technology, and digital economy is reflected in our landscape design, which offers a dynamic and entertaining commercial space, creating a diverse commercial experience. We are proud to have contributed our idea and design to this prominent mixed-use development, which is shaping the future of Beijing.
About Beijing Wangjing Hopson Kirin Place
Located in Wangjing Subdistrict, Beijing Wangjing Hopson Kirin Place is a prominent mixed-use development situated in the northeast of central Beijing. It is considered the second CBD of the city, along with other major mixed-use developments such as Wangjing Soho and Posco Centre. This self-contained and multifunctional urban area offers diversified living, shopping, and dining experiences, shaping the city’s new convergence hub for global business.
In response to the client’s needs and the government’s latest development strategy, the “Star Chain” concept was introduced to strengthen the Wangjing business circle. As one of the core stars of the Star Chain, Beijing Wangjing Hopson Kirin Place is committed to playing a key role in four areas: Environment, Culture, Technology, and Digital Economy, aligning with the client’s goals and the government’s vision for the area’s development.
The renovation concept design is themed around “Dynamic Square.” Through the combination of bright colors and lines, it creates a visually rich and vibrant square space, connecting the south entrance, east entrance, and north entrance of the commercial area, highlighting the overall image of the business. The newly added skateboard and outdoor dining areas effectively utilize the east commercial area and create a more diverse commercial experience. The skateboard and roller-skating facilities are integrated into the square design, which can attract young consumers from nearby universities. The square platform will cover the existing flower pond and extend it. By increasing the outdoor seating area and designing multiple platforms, the square becomes more open and friendly, creating a more intimate and pleasant atmosphere and increasing the value of the dining area.
