2019 WIN Awards: Joy City Kid’s World - Arizon Design

Joy City Kid’s World - Arizon Design is an entry in the Chain stores, department stores, supermarkets, concessions and pop-ups category at the 2019 World Interiors News Awards

Shanghai Joy City was completed on 30 July 2018.  The integration of the three-layer staggered structure of different heights on this floor was a challenge for the architect.  Shen Junwei of Arizon Design was inspired by Dandelion Hill, imagining the form of hills and adopting the rhythm of “contouring lines” in an undulating geography. In the space of 4,200 square meters, the retailing stores and public entertainment areas are merged into the circular moving stream of visitors.

The main scene is in the lift hall, the dandelion stems breaking through the soil and spreading. The “singing” stem art installation encourages the kids to hear the nature simply with ear, paying close attention. As kids are opening their eyes, enjoyable Flower Bud Book House and splendorous “Rainbow Forest” come to sight. The kids climb through the playful sliders with their body fully touching and feeling the movement, exploring tree houses in central plaza. In the end, they reach the shining “Fairy Masquerade”.

Like a palette being knocked over, the project brushes up to 200 colors in areas with different themes. Art installations and stores bump into and merge with each other, bringing livelihood and amusing expectations to the space.

The entire space is metaphorical for the process of life from budding, growing to maturity, encouraging the creative caprices and ideas to grow in kids, and leading them to explore the magic of nature.

The World Interiors News Awards showcase the best international design in both current and future projects. Entries for the 2019 Awards are now open - for further information and to submit your entry please click here.
