SHANXI TAIYUAN TIAN MEI CENTURY PLAZA [TAIYUAN, CHINA] BUILDING ON THE CLIENT’S GOAL OF CREATING THE TOP HIGH-END SHOPPING MALL AND DEPARTMENT STORE IN TAIYUAN, RTKL’S DESIGN TEAM MERGED THREE SEPARATE BUILDINGS TO CREATE ONE SEAMLESS SPACE THAT ECHOES THE CITY’S RICH HERITAGE. RTKL’s architects were challenged to tie together three existing buildings, while the interiors team was charged with creating a seamless, open transition from the mall area to the department store, all uniquely targeting men’s fashion. After working with the client and deciding on a concept of linking the city’s cultural past to its current and future success, the designers created a 50,000-SM flowing space with a six-story atrium and a comprehensive graphics and signage scheme that appeals to the shopping center’s affluent clientele.
