DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Olympia 66

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Retail & Shopping Mall

INSPIRATION:
Olympia 66 retail development is located in Xigang District adjacent to Olympia Square occupying 63,400sqm and with a retail GFA of 221,900sqm. The concept references the twin carp, a typical symbol in Chinese paintings, synonymous with wealth and abundance. The interplay of event spaces that leads to terraces through the sky-plaza carps swimming inspired forms containing a dynamic loop circulation through a chain of retail and atrium activities creating an exciting and diverse experience.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The vision of Olympia 66 is to create a contemporary statement with an oriental overtone. The design concept was inspired by the twin carp and the internal curving arcs resemble the swimming carp. The shells on the roof are layered to create clear storey glazing, allowing direct daylight and reflected light into the two atria. The project is pre-certified with a LEED Gold rating.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Start Date: May 2012 Completion Date: December 2015 Dalian, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The offset curving arcs of internal circulation resemble the body of the dancing carp expressed as a series of simple shells with the tail flowing over the curving central spine. The main façade is composed of hexagonal modules with lighting effect that references to the reflective scales of a carp. The largely solid insulated roof prevents heat loss in winter and solar gain in summer, creating a simple environmental solution that is responsive to the northern Chinese climate.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Shopping Mall Area: 221,900sqm 7 floors of retail in total from B1 to L6 3 levels of basement parking from B1 to B3

TAGS:
Aedas, Hang Lung, World Class Shopping Mall, Wuxi, Luxury Brands, China Architecture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The huge floor area on seven floors, is divided up into open space and retail areas by two curved routes that sweep across the mall and link the corner entrances. The passageways create a mobius loop through the mall to maximize shop frontage, enhance circulation and creating an “endless” experience. The sequenced leisure and event spaces along the retail route continue to a double height forum connecting the ice rink and outdoor terraces surround the building where alfresco dining can be enjoy.

CHALLENGE:
The building form enhances urban connectivity and integration through multiple entrances. The continuous shop frontage all around the street level of Olympia66 provides not only great visibility of retail but also make the building totally permeable at ground level, as it allows people to enter the building without going in through a specific entrance. To help customer navigate through the building, Integrated Digital Signage is integrated to provide the shortest route to customer’s destination.
