Driven by the concept of the “Hanging Gardens”, this iconic retail and office complex in Hongqiao’s CBD features lush gardens planted on various levels of the 5-storey outdoor shopping centre. Mature trees, lush, multi-layer plants, and water features seemingly spill down from the roof towards the street. The resulting experience is one which allows shoppers to discover Chinese-style gardens, pavilions, playgrounds, ponds, and plenty of areas for quiet respite.
Inspired by the traditional Chinese philosophy of the “Five Elements", the 5th floor roof garden is designed to feature distinct spaces inspired by the elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth. Amenities such as ponds, a petting zoo, and a teahouse offer visitors a shady oasis above the bustle of the streets below.
