Award-winning architecture firm Benoy has recently completed luxury shopping destination The Promenade in Macau

The retail area connects the first and second chapters of Galaxy Macau, a prestigious entertainment and leisure destination in the region. Featuring over 200 luxury and lifestyle brands, the space loops the length of Galaxy Macau and is nearly 1.5 kilometres long. Having worked in over 60 major cities, Benoy has built an enviable global reputation for world-class architectural design and has created an interior that reflects the calibre of design houses that can be found in The Promenade.

Covered by 22,600 sq-m of Italian marble, The Promenade exudes a peaceful opulence in its grandeur. Tactile finishes, natural stone, patterned detailing and soft lighting have all been utilised in the design, adding to the luxurious aesthetic. Other highlights include a double-height green wall, a sky-high glass curtain in the Jade Lobby and a scenic lift in the Pearl Lobby that showcases the skylights across The Promenade.

Specialised acoustic materials have been incorporated into the build so as to absorb noise and produce a more relaxing experience for shoppers. Benoy Director Alan Wan said: "Our design concept brings a hospitality mindset to retail space at The Promenade. We have made a conscious decision to celebrate the entrances to the hotels and integrate their ambience into the shopping spaces. Shoppers are not just shoppers in this development, they are made to feel like guests."
