Zhoushan City

Zhoushan, China

Inspired by the natural beauty and rich culture of Zhoushan PuTuo district - a bustling port that is home to the largest fishing fleet in China - the Zhoushan Cityproject was masterfully designed with the community in mind. The commercial portion of the project draws inspiration from the areas original textural alleyways, creating an inviting and walkable town center. Most of the staggered buildings are two to three levels, creating a truly unique spatial experience. Multiple terraces are placed on the upper levels, allowing for plentiful outdoor dining and expansive views. The landscaped terraces were inspired by the area’s lush, indigenous vegetation, creating a serene and natural setting. The apartments and hotel towers seem to flow naturally along the edges of the site, following the orientations of the master plan. The towers are grouped by their individual façade style, with subtle variation between one another, embracing the experiential retail spaces inside. To enhance the experience of the retail space, materials were used to create an eclectic shopping destination, while the harmonization of glass, metal, wood, and stone is reflective of the town’s history. The thoughtful design and community site planning will allow Zhoushan City to continue to evolve and become a truly unique destination.
