Was designed by SPARCH that located in Beijing, China, Raffles City Beijing comprises 150,000 sq m of offices, retail, serviced apartments and residential accommodation at the junction of Beijing’s East 2nd Ring Road and Dongzhimen Neidaijie. The ideal location takes advantage of direct links to Asia’s largest transport hub at Dongzhimen.
Consisting of a 21-storey office tower, 5-storey retail podium and immediately above, a 15-storey residential block to the west and 17-storey serviced apartment block to the east, the components work both independently and in solidarity. A united campus is formed with a uniform of crystalline elements introduced at various levels and in unique ways – each element is treated differently but all are visually unified. The retail podium and ‘clubhouse’ forming the entrance to the serviced apartments feature as the most dramatic of these elements.
