Wanliu Shopping Center
SIZE: 1,000,000 SF I SERVICES: ARCHITECTURE, INTERIOR DESIGN
ROLE: LEAD DESIGNER
The Beijing Wanmao Real Estate Development Company retained Perkins Eastman in alliance with Belluschi Consulting to design a new seven-level retail destination in the northeast section of Beijing. The 93,000 sm (1 million sf) Wanliu Shopping Center is a dynamic urban destination featuring an unparalleled array of entertainment choices.
Venues are thoughtfully arranged into distinct neighborhoods to inspire a sense of place—the selection of personalized and relatable interiors unites the distinct areas into several districts. Balconies that line the corridors are stepped back on one side as each level rises, creating an amphitheater experience that affords shoppers views of live entertainment in the center court. Cinemas on the fourth level utilize state-of-the-art technology and stadium-style seating. Their proximity to the themed restaurants makes this theater complex an exciting family destination.
Wanliu also features a high-energy entertainment district where progressive merchandising combines with high technology, interactive products, performance spaces, and food arts.
