The Oval Partnership took on the lead role of chief architect of this 390,000 sq.m. project comprising a diverse range of mixed use spaces that serves this growing regional hub. Accommodating retail, entertainment, hotel, office and apartment uses, Hangzhou Intime City is designed to evoke a vibrant mix of atmospheres, zones, and themes to enrich the urban centre experience. The scheme intelligently combines both indoor and outdoor realms, planned around an internal naturally lit GALLERIA and an open-air Canalside Walk. The centre is full of surprises, with unexpected asymmetrical and dynamic forms creating a dramatic backdrop for large open event spaces, shopping, dining, entertainment and people-watching, etc. The project opened in September 2013 and attracted over 200,000 people on its first day along with a sales record of RMB 12 million.
