Design firm Benoy has just revealed its design for “Gala Avenue Westside,” a future mixed-use structure set within the iconic Lujiazui HARBOUR City development of Shanghai. Benoy (who recently created a green architectural design for Taiwan’s High-Speed Rail’s Hsin Chu Station Mall) have been appointed as the Masterplanner, Architect and Interior Designer of the Gala Avenue, set for completion in 2018.

HARBOUR City’s progressive redevelopment comprises 250,000 square meters of riverside land that was formerly an industrial shipyard region. As an integral component of the overall scheme, Gala Avenue Westside will serve as a commercial and entertainment space inspired by both “historical elements and modern materials.”

We have embraced the history of the site and built upon this as we conceived our design which celebrates the themes of ‘New and Old’, ‘East and West’ and ‘Traditional and Modern’, said Qin Pang, Director and Head of Benoy’s Shanghai Studio.

Allowing scenic views of the Huangpu River and Pudong cityscape, the Gala’s plan encompasses a 100-meter office tower and 12 interlocked retail hubs linked by a chain of squares (above and below ground). In maintaining modern materials, the interior design components maintain a minimalist aesthetic and palette, motivated by the traditional Shikumen style.
