The K11 ECOAST in Shenzhen, China, will cover a footprint of more than 2.4 million square feet and it will house an “Art Mall”, a multi-purpose art space K11 HACC, the K11 ATELIER office building, and a landscaped waterfront Promenade.
The team at K11 Group affirmed that the design will “combine the concept of green development alongside the conservation of waterfront resources” and hopes to promote a sustainable lifestyle and circular economy. The design by David Chipperfield Architects, Sou Fujimoto, and OMA is also a culturally significant addition to the city.
The space is organized with a split-level entryway leading to programming including 270° sea view restaurants and immersive, multi-sensory art spaces. The HACC Art Space will show a collection of contemporary works from around the world and offer young Chinese artists a spotlight platform.
The complex will be built in accordance with China’s 14th Five-Year Plan national guidelines on environmental protection and sustainable development for the circular economy. The K11 ECOAST will represent the largest total LEED Platinum Pre-Certified cluster of buildings in Shenzhen’s Greater Bay Area.
