To ensure continuous trading of the existing Metro, the first phase includes a new supermarket in the current car park area before demolishing the old one. The typology is inspired by the historical Chengdu city fabric, courtyard spaces are defined by individual blocks which create a meandering design public realm experience. The blocks are articulated in Chengdu local materials such as grey bricks, timber, and bamboo. Multiple bamboo roofs filter and control the internal light and atmosphere with different directions and sizes.
