Hong Kong – LWK + PARTNERS is pleased to announce that two of the firm’s design projects in China won distinguished acclaims at world-renowned The Global RLI Awards 2021! The awards were announced in a hybrid presentation ceremony held in London on 23 September.
Zijing Paradise Walk, Hangzhou, China
- RLI Most Innovative Retail & Entertainment Project (Highly Commended)
Designed with culture and wellness themes, this shopping mall freshens up the local retail scene with playful references to village life, Hui-style architecture and traditional Chinese gardens. Not only is the building aesthetically pleasing, but it also provides cool shades for passers-by with shifting and cantilevered forms.
MixC Dongguan Songshan Lake District Mixed Use Development, Dongguan, China
- RLI Future Project (Highly Commended)
The project is conceived as a catalyst of urban transformation turning a sub-urban industrial landscape to a robust lifestyle and cultural hub. Featuring diverse energising public spaces and multifarious greenery, the project also benefits the community with premium apartments and commercial facilities.
Ferdinand Cheung, Director of LWK + PARTNERS, joined the ceremony online and noted: "I would like to thank RLI and the jury for the recognition. Credits to the team for their continuous efforts through the challenges in both projects. We also look forward to the completion of the MixC project in Dongguan."
