Benoy, the global studio of Architects, Masterplanners, Interior and Graphic Designers, is proud to celebrate the grand opening of Macau’s newest luxury retail development – ‘The Promenade’ at the spectacular entertainment and leisure destination, Galaxy Macau.
A shopping destination and cafe society for the international community, The Promenade connects the first and second chapters of Galaxy Macau, featuring over 200 luxury and lifestyle brands and also linking the development’s six world-class hotels.
Adding 65,000 m² to complete the retail development which is almost 1.5 km in length, The Promenade is a luxury shopping destination that loops the length of Galaxy Macau. Covered by 22,600 m² of Italian marble, the ultra-luxurious interior has been designed to ensure the retail and hotel areas sit in harmony with each other.
Tactile finishes, natural stone, patterned detailing, soft lighting and 5-Star amenities all contribute to the peaceful opulence and grandeur of The Promenade. Acoustic materials dampen and absorb noise, producing a relaxing and enchanting shopping experience.
Other notable design highlights include a double-height green wall and multi-storey glass curtain in the Jade Lobby, and the Pearl Lobby with its scenic lift that showcases generous skylights across The Promenade.
Benoy Director Alan Wan explained:
“Our design concept brings a hospitality mindset to the retail space at The Promenade. We have made a conscious decision to celebrate the entrances to the hotels and integrate their ambience into the shopping spaces. Shoppers are not just shoppers in this development, they are made to feel like guests.”
Alan Walker, Senior Vice President of Retail, Galaxy Macau said:
“The Promenade is designed as a perfect home to international luxury flagships, designer boutiques and trendy cafes. The lobbies bring in a wealth of natural light, giving our guests a pleasant, energetic and inviting ambience.”
The Promenade defines a new level of luxury retail in Macau attracting around 30 first-to-Macau designer and lifestyle brands including: Alexander McQueen, Georg Jensen, Delvaux, Harry Winston, Jean-Paul Hevin, Maje, Moncler, Mulberry, Proenza Schouler, Roger Viver, Sandro and more. Visitors will also find flagship Macau shopping opportunities from brands like Burberry, Nike and DFS Beauty.
Highly anticipated, The Promenade at Galaxy Macau opened on 27 May 2015. This is Benoy’s second completed development in Macau.
