Brock Carmichael led the international joint venture Octagon Partnership to create this competition winning proposal for the masterplan and preliminary concept design of a 52 acre waterfront development in the East Port New District of Tianjin, North China

Detail

Ocean One aims to become a world class yacht resort and urban retreat – a vibrant and luxurious mixed use complex, integrating high quality urban living with existing ecological and historical conditions to provide a sustainable and diverse social leisure environment. The development principally comprised apartments, villas, live-work units, retail, leisure and entertainment on four sites, along with the existing developments of a 5* hotel, yacht club and marina.

Underpinning the masterplan was the idea of creating an in-land boardwalk that linked the marina with a large scale leisure development at the heart of the site. This destination provided a counterpoint to the waterfront and created a ‘promenade’ along which residents, could experience, and connect with the whole development.
