Sanya Lake Park Supermarket
NL Architects 

As part of a masterplan in Sanya, the southernmost city of China, in Hainan, the supermarket, located on a triangular plot, is covered by stepped terraces filled with luxuriant vegetation and a small commercial street that runs through these. 

The main volume, containing retail areas and a coffee shop, has been placed underground allowing direct access from the car park. The three glass-enclosed corners of the roof fold upwards to mark the supermarket entrances.
