Luxury shopping malls often come across as aloof and unapproachable. The K11 Art Mall, however, has had a lively and upbeat feel ever since it opened its doors in 2013. Popular restaurants, cafés, and boutiques blend with trendy art to produce a special ambiance. K11 Art Mall features a diverse art collection that includes both local and international names (such as Damien Hirst), and the art creates a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The 3,000 ft2 basement additionally hosts a variety of exhibitions, readings, and workshops.
