Zhongshan Butterfly District

Project Overview

Status: Completed

The Butterfly District is a vision to regenerate a collection of old industrial warehouses and sustainably transform into a creative business hub, giving a new lease of life to this central district of Zhongshan city in the south of China.

Inspired by the client’s logo - a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, the Butterfly District creates a home for local entrepreneurs to interact and exchange ideas within a vibrant neighbourhood of pedestrianized laneways and central square.

Warehouses are transformed into studio offices above shops and restaurants at street level. The Butterfly theme weaves through the architecture and landscape to stitch together a community with its own unique flavour and brand. Developed and recently opened in phases, this popular destination is 100% occupied.
