ASL : Shenzhen Merin INJOY Mall is a regional benchmarking commercial project of one of excellence’s three product lines.  Opened on August 26, 2016, the commercial building area reaches 100,000 square meters, with two floors underground and three floors above ground.  The surrounding residential areas and industrial parks are dense, seamlessly connected with Shenzhen Metro Line 4 and Line 9, with obvious geographical advantages.




According to our investigation and analysis, the sunken plaza is old and poorly lit.  The entrance of the sunken square is connected to L entrance of subway ground, and negative second floor is connected to the subway.  In the subway, more people use escalators to enter and exit the shopping mall through negative first floor entrance , and less use long steps from first floor to second floor. The customer acquisition rate of shops on the second floor is very low. And escalator on the south side from negative first floor to second floor, not in the mainstream traffic line, basically no one use.

With continuous development and maturity of science and technology and change of people’s shopping habits and concepts, the way of “scene + shopping” is more and more applied in offline business experience, and the business scene construction gradually tends to be “IP” and “third space”, so that consumers can get more scene-based experience.  Shenzhen INJOY Shopping Center gradually optimizes business environment, and improves merchant brand and business format, under the background the business scene upgrading and transformation project was born.



策略 Strategy


What to keep? What memory does it hold in the hearts of merlyn? It’s something we’ve been asking and thinking about in the transformation.

演绎草地音乐节,共享自然的高定 Interpretation of the grassland music festival, sharing the high nature



Merlyn INJOY Club has successfully operated grassland music festival for several years in the surrounding green land. It not only brings commercial value, but also becomes the cultural name card of Meilin area. We want to inherit site gene and deduce site memory.

Through combination of vertical greening and sense of rhythm of ecological curtain wall, the addition of rest seats and fashionable light signage devices designers create a place for people to gather together and truly interact with society and environment, so that people and nature can coexist harmoniously in a sustainable way. The improvement of the space creates a round-the-clock experience for different types of people.

The project transforms the original single commercial sunken plaza into a composite business mode combining commerce, culture, art and public facilities to meet needs of diverse user groups. The design improves original scale imbalance and separation from city, turning unused scarce public space into a walking network connecting various public Spaces. Through space optimization, the original inefficient sunken commercial space is transformed into an open, light fashion, life-oriented and communicative commercial block.

材料 — 竹木的运用 Materials – use of bamboo and wood


The combination of vertical greenery and the rhythm of bamboo and wood curtain wall designers create an experience centered on biophile design. A variety of vertical greenery, with climbing plants that change with the seasons, ensures flowering throughout the year, incorporating nature into every aspect of the design. which not only enriches the visual sense, delights physical and mental health, but also promotes carbon neutrality of the commercial project itself and significant.

激活 Activation


The original dark and lifeless sunken space has been transformed into a natural and shady urban space, making INJOY defined as a warm urban service brand, committed to providing more comfortable and convenient services and space for the public. There are also many cases where targeting public service leads to more long-term, impactful and sustainable business success.



建造纪实 Documentary of construction



The site was built for a long time. At beginning of the transformation, we measured site, reviewed architectural drawings and optimized the transformation design according to stone size.

In the construction process of the sunken square, there are still differences between actual material size and the drawing. The designer adjusted width and height of vertical greening of the wall according to the size of dry hanging stone on the wall and position of split seam, confirmed situation of the construction side, and ensured display of design effect. At the same time bamboo and wood seat sample section were made on scene, designers adjust joint and other issues, and finally determine implementation of the process.
