Kimhae community park

South Korea-based Shinsegae has commenced construction on the Kimhae Centre in the South Gyeongsang province.

Designed by Los Angeles-based architecture and urban design firm The Jerde Partnership, the new 145,000m² centre integrates outdoor culture and community spaces with five levels of retail and entertainment, along with transportation facilities.

Kimhae Centre mixed-used project combines three major project components, including an on-site bus terminal, intimate seven-screen cinema and an adjacent E-Mart discount anchor.

The bus terminal has completed construction and pilings for the commercial centre started recently.

An outdoor public park, entry plaza at street level and a rooftop sky park garden will be part of the signature community spaces of the centre.

"The park has been designed with a minimalist aesthetic, including…floating elements with lighting, outdoor seating and geometric landscape." 

The retail centre’s architecture has been designed to provide distinct visibility along the main Kimhae-daero highway and parallel metro line.

On the opposite side along JEONHA-ro, the project’s main entry has been highlighted by a new community park.

The park has been designed with a minimalist aesthetic, including horizontal banding and patterned concrete, and floating elements with lighting, outdoor seating and geometric landscape.

The park comprises a sunken cultural event space that houses a public amphitheatre, performance area and serene water features.

The sky park garden on the centre’s roof level offers panoramic views to the scenic city, mountains and waterways.
