Launched as a shopping centre dedicated to women, Xintiandi Plaza aims to carve a niche for itself in China’s ultra-competitive retailing sector. Some 16 international brands have opened their first outlet on the People’s Republic of China mainland to provide female shoppers one-of-a-kind shopping experience.
The 27,000sqm shopping centre, which is a renovation and refurbishment of an original 20-year-old building, is part of a fashionable entertainment and commercial complex.
The main façade system on this project are patch plate supported glass wall and terracotta cladding. The curved terracotta cladding is made up of thousands of diamond-shaped panels. Every three terracotta panels are pre-assembled onto a hexagon aluminium plate as one unit, which is then hung onto continuous rails behind the cladding.
