Jingnan Paradise Walk is a shopping center located northwest of Chengdu, China. Situated 6.8km from the city center, it presents a unique opportunity to create a sense of connection along the busy Jinyang Road.
Drawing both from its urban setting and the natural landscape, the design presents a melding of organic and urban that reflects in the interior material and external form. This synthesis evokes the sense of water rushing over smooth stone.
Paradise Walk’s courts are washed in color themes that reflect the water terraces in Jiuzhagou and incorporate imagery representative of Chengdu: bamboo, chili, gingko, streams and rice fields. The colorful design creates distinct retail character in each court and aids in wayfinding.
The design of Paradise Walk, merging urban and organic, hard and soft, creates an iconic character for the new mall that both reflects its context and creates a welcoming environment for visitors to shop and play.
