LIGHTING ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS.
Xi’an SKP: Development Awards “Best Retail Development” - 2018 Property Guru Asia Property Awards (China)
2018-11-29

Xi’an SKP was the former Shaanxi Cultural Center located at the Southeast corner of the Yongning gate, known as the South gate of Xi’an (capital of the Shaanxi province). It’s not only the oldest and most beautifully decorated gate of the city dating back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), but it was also the starting point of the ancient Silk Road.

Facade


For our customer Beijing Hualian (SKP) Real Estate Co., Ltd., this project is also a new starting point after the successful interior renovation of its first retail project in Beijing, including a major part of its interior lighting renovation performed by our team. By improving the successful contemporary design recipe used in Beijing, the architect and interior design company Sybarite created lines and curves that reflect the customer’s corporate identity by spreading around and within the 19-storey 164,779 m2 building A and 6-storey 72,268 m2 building B. For key areas of the façade and some of the interior space, real size 1:1 mockups were necessary to confirm the entire design.


The architect incorporated a black honeycomb pattern on the 3 shades of gray glass curtain wall onto which bronze mullions are installed with integrated and hidden linear 3000K DMX controlled LED that reveal exceptional horizontal lines and curves at night. 


The interior integrates both standard and unique features allowing a symbiosis between premium international luxury brands and other popular international and local brands through flooring, ceiling and lighting design unique to each floor.

The entire interior lighting uses high CRI (90+) LEDs to ensure products are displayed at their best with a 3000K color temperature, except in the vivid first floor beauty/cosmetics area and third floor atrium where the color temperature is 4000K.
