Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl, together with MLA+ and Colliers, won the competition for the detailed design of Xiaomeisha Coastal Zone in Shenzhen, China, with the key issues of reconnection, resilience and revival.

On October the 25th, 2019, Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl, together with MLA+ and Colliers, won the competition for the detailed design of Xiaomeisha Coastal Zone in Shenzhen, China. The winning team stood out from six competition groups.

Xiaomeisha Coastal Zone is located in the east of Shenzhen, surrounded by mountains on three sides and facing the sea. By connecting the mountains and the sea with multiple paths, the purpose of the project is to integrate spatial features and to create a fun and interesting area.

The winning proposal consisted of three parts addressing the key issues for the development of Xiaomeisha beach front:

  • Reconnection: to reconnect the mountains with the sea.
  • Resilience: represents an eco-safety concept of dealing with environmental issues.
  • Revival: to create a thriving and economically viable beach resort.

The committee found the first-place winning design comprehensive. The design leads a tour to Xiaomeisha in the eyes of a tourist. It takes into account planning, traffic, tourism and functional trade, subsequent operation, presenting extensive and meticulous thinking. By creating comprehensive blue-green infrastructure, the landscape planning aims to reduce rain and storm surge pressure on Xiaomeisha from both the mountains and sea.

Detailed planning will start in due course with the next milestones expected in summer of 2020.
