The Hong Kong-based online publication INDESIGNLIVE.HK, introduced readers to the remarkable CapitaMall Xinduxin shopping complex in Qingdao, China. Vast at 1.7 million square feet, the CapitaMall has been artfully designed by Laguarda.Low Architects to create “a relaxing shopping experience,” in the words of Pablo Laguarda, Principal of Laguarda.Low. By allowing natural light into the complex through strategically placed apertures, key spaces are highlit and intimate environments are created. Warm, light materials and verdant planting add to the natural, calming effect.
