Shoukai Vanke in Beijing’s Daxing district has little historic resonance but uses a park and circulation routes as the core of 154,000 of development around and within it. Daxing is being planned as the gateway to the city from a proposed airport, and has a masterplan which proposes a 1.5km long green belt.
CLOU turns one end of this landscape strip into a garden programmed with amenities and activities using both natural and artificial features, pierced by routes between the retail and hotel tower on the south, and more retail and offices to the north. Circulation routes as well as programmed or informal activities help to animate the park.
To the South of the park the mixed use development is composed of a 20,000 sqm large shopping mall, a 124 meter tall office tower as well as a 63 meter tall serviced apartment tower.

Lift cores, staircases, vestibules and back of house corridors are the life- and supply lines of a well-functioning shopping mall. In a deliberate strategy CLOU has partly exposed these supply lines to the exterior which excludes them from the overall GFA count resulting in an area gain of 1300 sqm. The additional 1300 sqm were deployed as terraces around the atrium to serve as typical gathering spaces (square, market place, balcony and promenade). Escalators and walkways weave them into a three dimensional urban pedestrian network creating an extension of the public domain within the shopping mall.
The mixed use ensemble embedded in a landscape designed by BAM (Ballistic Architecture Machine) encourages voluntary discovery and a dynamic experience.
