Jing Ao International Commercial plaza is embedded at the intersection of two major vehicular arteries in the city of Tianjin, China. This small scale intervention is the commercial component to a larger residential project by the same client. It incorporates learned systems that provide a variety of experiences to visitors while integrating the intervention to its surroundings. The hotel and offices become a strong destination that feed the commercial spaces intertwined along a coherent and carefully choreographed circuitous sequence of courtyards, corridors and plazas in a woonerf-type spatial composition. The interventions creates a wholesome experience of seamless transitions that collate a variety of retail tenants enhancing the standing of the project to a full-fleshed destination enclave on a key location of the city.
