Benoy Designs Hsin Chu Station MallMarch 18, 2014
THSR appointed Benoy to conceive a low density retail project which would also deliver environmental benefits to the community of Hsin Chu and surrounding residential developments. Reinforcing the current trend for diverse and vibrant transportation hubs, the development will be built on a 30,000m2 site directly connected to the Hsin Chu High Speed Rail Station.
“The North-East angled plots act to mitigate the windy climate and we have drawn the landscape up to the roof of the low-rise retail buildings to create multi-functional green spaces,” Wisely Suen, Senior Associate Director at Benoy explains. “The three-dimensional retail experience has essentially preserved a large portion of the landscape for the users. The green slope design will be accessible from ground level and transformed into outlets for dining, restaurants and entertainment. The landscaped scheme will also feature an amphitheater and eight cinema houses alongside the retail offer”.
Benoy’s design prominently features environmentally-friendly initiatives to support THSR’s green vision. Sustainable building materials, sun shading, green roof insulation, rain water collection, grey water recycling and solar power have all been integrated into the design.
Hsin Chu Station Mall adds to Benoy’s growing presence in Taiwan which already includes the completed Megacity scheme in New Taipei and the future multi-purpose sports facility, Farglory Dome, in the capital.
