Retail, Dining + Entertainment Design | Circles Mixed-use Concept + Master Plan

The Circle of Life is the chosen metaphor of Shenfu, a wholly new city in the north of China. At the heart of the new city is a circular lake. Two BTA projects grace the lake’s newly created shoreline. The first is the Shenfu Circles mixed-use center, a vibrant retail, entertainment and office center that physically and philosophically embraces and celebrates Shenfu’s representative metaphor.

Circles is sculpted from a series of interlocking cylindrical forms, stitched together by a serpentine pedestrian street making up the core of the guest experience. The expressive forms of this street are punctured by a series of negative cylinders – round courtyards, each with a character of its own, highlighting the pedestrian experience. The circular theme is further accentuated by four positive cylinders – carefully placed towers that create a dramatic skyline for both this project and the city center lake.

Contrasts and the creative use of media are two hallmarks of BTA‘s work. Circles exploits both of these talents. Translucent walls of glass and metal mesh serve as sun filters by day and media canvases by night. When the sun sets, the walls are painted with colored light and projected video. Further, the four cylindrical towers are paired according to their skins. Two are solids, with subtly fenestrated stone facades, contrasted by the unique layers of delicate lace that cover the other two towers.
