SM Xiamen Phase III was named one of the five winners of the 2022 Best Architectural Design Award from GBE HOPSCA Awards, where eligible nominees from Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan were judged on overall planning, architectural design, landscape design, and interior design.

As an extension project of SM Xiamen Complex located in the geometric center of Xiamen Island, SM Xiamen Phase III invested CNY 800 million and has a total construction area of nearly 170,000 square meters, including a shopping center opened in December of 2022, an 18-storey hotel that’s currently under construction, and more than 1,000 parking lots.

SM Xiamen Phase III was designed based on the natural conditions of Xiamen (also known as “Egret Island”), taking its special landscape pattern of mountains, waters, and islands as the features and reflected by sculpture, pavement, ecosystem, and other elements, from the perspective of landscaping.

Inheriting the consciousness of SM Xiamen Complex, the indoor and outdoor space of SM Xiamen Phase III integrates green, leisure, and social elements with interest and creation, from the perspective of architectural design.

Sky corridors were built between Phase III and Phase I or II for a closer connection for “City in the City,” and improve the sense of level. It also presents a more multi-dimensional, interesting, and impressive building body and public space.

In terms of interior design, SM Xiamen Phase III is presented with bright lighting and well-arranged floors, reflecting the atmosphere of understated elegance. The inner space echoes its appearance, with spacious atrium skylights fully applying natural lighting. Meanwhile, the escalators are stacked in a crisscross manner, arranged with glass railings and clear storefronts, providing multiple and transparent display angles for stores and commodities.

Joshua Tie, AVP-Construction of SM China, delivered a speech at the forum, sharing that the design concept of SM Xiamen Phase III comes from the standpoints of functionality, humanization, sociality, marketing, and sustainability, empowering its market and social value.
