Jie Fang Village is located in Ba’nan, Chongqing. This mixed-use development consists of residential, mall retail, street retail, grocery and cinema in a space of over 1,000,000 sf. The Village is located on a steeply sloped site creating a challenge to transverse. A series of arrayed pathways, terraces and bridges seamlessly connect one side of the site to the other. The project was conceived as a central piece to a much larger urban master plan. Project entry points are located in strategic places to make future connectivity to adjacent sites easier to navigate. The mall retail acts as a gateway from the main boulevard, welcoming pedestrians into the site. An innovative inside/outside “room” allows travel from the sidewalk into the central plaza of the site by passing through the central spine of the mall without having to go inside. Street retail is carefully integrated into the pathways and bridges, allowing for a smaller and more traditional shopping experience all around the lower portion of the site.
