Benoy has announced the ground breaking of the Lan Kwai Fong development in Wuxi, China. The masterplan and architectural design concept by Benoy were unveiled at a ceremony held on 8 July for the future lifestyle destination situated in Jiangsu province and set to open in 2015.
The Lan Kwai Fong development will establish a new lifestyle and entertainment hub for
the coastal city of Wuxi that uniquely blends art, dining, culture and retail. Benoy’s holistic scheme has been heavily inspired by the local architecture, fusing together modern and traditional styles to create a destination that celebrates its locale.
Simon Blore, Global Managing Director of Benoy explained the design philosophy of the project, ‘We have ensured unity and harmony in the overall architectural design of Lan Kwai Fong Wuxi and are confident that the development will be the iconic cultural and entertainment landmark of Taihu New City.’
Dr Allan Zeman, Lan Kwai
Fong Group, added, ‘Wuxi is the most beautiful secret of China for its stunning
natural scenery and living environment. The modern architecture, spectacular
dining atmosphere and year-round events and parties will definitely bring the
Lan Kwai Fong style of energy and fun to the pearl of Taihu Lake.’
