Masterplanners to some of the world's leading mixed-use schemes

'Global 100' is a mixed-use, leisure, retail, hospitality and residential scheme over 400ha in Haikou on Hainan Island, China. When complete, it will rival existing globally famous attractions offered by Disney and other entertainment industry leaders.

It will consist of six different villages, each influenced by international film-making attractions from China, Europe and America.

Concept for the UK village

For the English village, film characters including James Bond 007, Alice in Wonderland and Mr. Bean have been juxtaposed with English cultural and architectural icons, including historic castles, traditional country villages and markets, as well as elements from the country’s industrial heritage.

Concept for the Chinese Village

The concept of the Chinese Village draws on the ancient Loulan kingdom or ‘ancient desert city’, featuring twin towers housing a major entertainment facility at the centre of the design.

A waterfront component features a fishing village, an indoor street and the giant ship from the legendary story of ‘Zheng He’s Expedition’. All these elements work together to create an impression of ‘The Great Silk Road’ journey.

Chapman Taylor developed the masterplan for Global 100, as well as providing the concept and architectural designs for the English and Chinese villages
