New York-based architectural and design firm Laguarda.Low has recently completed Thaihot Plaza in Fuzhou, China

Located at a major intersection in central Fuzhou, Thaihot Plaza offers 1.4 million sq.ft of retail space and consists of six levels. The shopping mall section faces south and a large public plaza with three levels of outdoor shops and restaurants look to the north.

Indoor and outdoor spaces complement each other to offer a range of environments for a modern and sophisticated shopping experience. The outdoor plaza serves as the central social space, surrounded by three levels of shops and restaurants.

A curvilinear skylight with horizontal and vertical glazed surfaces covers the atrium of the mall, allowing natural sunlight to penetrate. Natural and manufactured materials, including granite, aluminum-framed storefronts with glass canopies, glass and stainless steel railings, and red clay tile, are woven into both the interior and exterior of this mixed-used complex.

“We are excited and honoured to have designed this complex. We sought to create a luxurious yet inviting environment, offering convenience, comfort and lifestyle amenities for shoppers and visitors,” says John Low, principal at Laguarda.Low Architects, a studio well known for their mastery of mixed-use and commercial projects throughout the world.
