LWK + PARTNERS-designed Zijing Paradise Walk in Hangzhou, China is recognised as RLI Most Anticipated Opening 2020 at Global RLI Awards! Winners were announced at the glamourous virtual presentation ceremony last night.
Driven by themes of leisure and wellness, this lifestyle mall in the West Lake district of Hangzhou, China, celebrates the essence of traditional Hangzhou and Hui architecture, which is known for their elegance and conciseness, particularly with a contemporary version of iconic shaved roofs and interlocking spaces. Inspired by the concept of ‘Liu Bai’ – leaving parts of the canvas blank – from Chinese ink paintings, courtyards are injected to provide ample space for visitors to enjoy a breather and unwind while looking out towards the Wulitang River.
“It’s a great honour for Zijing Paradise Walk to be recognised with the award ,” said Ferdinand Cheung, Director of LWK + PARTNERS. “I want to thank RLI and the members of the jury for the recognition, and the team for the delivery of the amazing project. ”
The Global RLI Awards, now in its 15th edition, is an annual international event that celebrates the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from across the globe. A judging panel consisting of industry leaders reviews each entry according to comprehensive criteria from design and operational performance to sustainability.
