Designed by B+H Architects, You You International is located in Shanghai, China. The project covers two large city blocks connected by a pedestrian bridge at the second floor level. On the east block, an office tower hugs the southwest corner of a four-storey retail podium. On the west block, the hotel and service apartment tower rises from a three-storey base of amenities including a spa, conference centre, restaurants and lobbies, all of which surround a publicly-accessible landscaped courtyard.
The curvilinear triangular form of the towers recognizes that there are privileged views in all directions in this part of the city. The result is an elegant yet dramatic presence in the skyline which marks a new destination in Shanghai’s Pudong area. The courtyard is central to achieving the desired social animation. This idea is echoed in section over the three towers and defined by sky gardens of multi-level heights and soaring atria.
