Houhai Infinite Walk
Location: Shenzhen, China
Client: Construction Works Bureau of Shenzhen Nanshan District and China Resources (Shenzhen) Co.,Ltd.

One could say that the Houhai district forms the essence of Shenzhen. In this district you see most of the iconic high-rises, the most favorite theatres, the most dynamic stadium, the most popular parks, the most fashionable malls, and most of all, the most expensive properties.
Walking along the big platform in the area, pedestrians no longer have to worry about crossing the road. However, every time people walk to the end of the platform they might think: how nice if we can walk all the way to the beach.
Houhai Infinite Walk strives to create such a pleasant walking space at the end of Shenzhen Bay East Street. At the start at Houhai Station, people can truly feel the convenience and efficiency that modern Shenzhen provides to its citizens. On Infinity Ring, people can enjoy fun and excitement with friends and family. At Talent’s Vibe Park, people can relax and celebrate the time at the watershore.
