Chapman Taylor wins design competition for Global Harbor in Lanzhou, China

Our successful competition design for Lanzhou Global Harbor will create an elegant and dynamic, retail-led development which will provide the city with an exciting, all-day destination for people of all generations. The mixed-use project will create a shopping centre, a vibrant shopping street, offices, apartments and a hotel within a built environment characterised by a well-considered and energetic blend of classical and contemporary architectural styles.

The development will host 350-metre-high twin residential and hospitality towers, set back from the commercial frontage along the West Jinxi Road. An office building will sit to the west side of the scheme, with apartment buildings of varying heights to the east - all combining to create the sense of a gateway to the city from the high-speed railway station.

The interior of the multi-level shopping centre will build on the successful Jiangnan and Shanghai Global Harbor concepts, using a classical architectural style to create distinctive themed spaces, such as Arcade Avenue, Central Plaza, Ponte Vecchio Street, Garden Avenue, The Grand Dome, The New York Atrium, Canal Street, a large indoor aquarium and an indoor zoo. A diverse and rich programme of cultural and entertainment events and activities will make Lanzhou Global Harbor a shopping and leisure landmark for the city and the wider region.

The semi-open commercial street has also been designed in a classical style, punctuated by contemporary elements to create synergy between the ancient and the modern. The scheme's business centre will blend classical, renaissance and modern architecture to create a unique and dynamic environment within which to work and conduct business, with façade terraces for open-air meetings or relaxation.

Landscape design will draw inspiration from formal European gardens, creating a green and visually pleasing environment for visitors. The rich and relaxing spaces will Include a classical garden, a hedge maze, a fountain garden, a Marco Polo-themed park, a monster garden and an urban farm.

Chapman Taylor's competition-winning design concept for Yuexing Group follows on from our successful collaborations with them on the award-winning Jiangnan and Shanghai Global Harbor projects.

The fundamental intention of the design is to create a wide range of experiences in a multi-themed environment offering a vibrant mix of uses.
