China Resources Hengqin Grand MixC

Zhuhai, China
Located in the new central business district on Hengqin Island, China Resources Land’s Grand MixC is a large scale mixed use masterplan with destination retail as a major anchor to create a dynamic new city centre in Zhuhai, China. To realise the client’s vision, the design team created an ‘Experience Central Square’, which marks the nexus of the river and mountain geometries that surround the site. This large central hub becomes the active heart of the masterplan unifying 4 neighbourhoods and providing a vibrant retail and cultural destination.

Subsequent to the successful completion of the masterplan, 10 Design has been awarded to design the architecture for phase 2 of the development.

The ‘Experience Central Square’ offers a series of cultural programs such as an art and performing centre and outdoor multi-purpose venue. Such engagement of experiences will allure visitors to spend good quality entertainment time at the venue. This in turn will generate footfall supporting the Duty Free Mall, retail high street, and F&B outlets throughout the development.
In addition to the ‘Experience Central Square’, the energy of the city centre is ignited by the diverse mix of amenities including the Central Green Belt - Wanxiang Avenue, Retail Axis, Waterfront Promenade, National Pavilions, Expo and Convention Centre.
Sustainable design is a key driver for the masterplan design. The first concept is to minimise the energy requirements through simple passive solar principles. Another goal is to reduce the reflectance and light pollution generated by the project through maximising the solid areas of the tower façades. With the proximity to the river, treating the storm water run-off through bio swales and abundant garden spaces is also very critical to achieving an eco-responsible design.

Through these combined amenities and green initiatives, Hengqin Grand MixC will transform the island into one of the most sustainable and integrated city centres in Southern China.
