The Ring by Lead8

Lead8 has created a retail destination designed around one of China's largest indoor botanic gardens.

The project is located in Chongqing, and is a first-of-its-kind for the city as a place that intertwines retail, nature, culture and experience. Coming to life with a 42-metre-tall botanical garden, interactive sports and culture facilities, and a diverse blend of tenant retailers, The Ring blends innovative design with the draw of nature to provide a point of focus for the city.

The power of biophilia and the desire to be close to nature is front and centre, pushing the agenda forward for future commercial developments.

This project has been longlisted in the large retail interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
