Beijing financial district gets high-end fashion mall
Story 10

BEIJING FINANCE STREET HOLDING COMPANY LTD, a stateowned public company in China, has opened its high-end fashion mall, Seasons Place. Located in the Xicheng district of West Central Beijing, the mall hosts a number of international upmarket brands the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dior, Gucci and Ermenegildo Zegna.

Said Geoff Morrison, principal and managing director of ‘concept i’, the company that conceptualised the mall design: “The project is conceived as a high-end lifestyle destination with the world’s best international brands on a grand scale. It is unrivalled in terms of investment in retail interior design.”

The inspiration behind its design, Morrison added, is taken from traditional Chinese landscape paintings, and is executed “in the most modern and abstract way” with textured limestone surfaces, landscape terraces and cascades.

US-based architectural and engineering firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill’s has been commissioned to give the 80,000sqm four-storey mall, with a basement, a soft-curved architecture featuring one of the country’s largest “spanning skylights”.

“The night illumination is dramatic, projected, using LED colour-change lighting technology, on the vast skylight structure as a palette for changing moods and ambience,” Morrison said.
