ARCHITECTURE

Xujiahui Centre, Shanghai, China

Xujiahui Centre is one of the most prestigious projects Shanghai has seen in recent times. It is a comprehensive development with a total gross floor area at 584,000 sq.m., comprising commercial offices on top of retail podiums. The development aims to drive Shanghai forwards as an open, modern, multifunctional and world-class city.

The project was designed to establish connections between the existing neighbourhood and the new contemporary development. The building design subtly echoes a similar language with the other buildings across the project, giving a distinctive outlook and aiming to be perceived as a comprehensive and holistic development. The buildings represent a modern development inserted into the existing urban fabric with all its rich culture and history. They also blend into the surrounding neighbourhood by providing functions needed for the district and by tailoring the scale of buildings and the building materials to suit the existing environment.

The design programme began in 2013, and it is currently under construction on the site. The expected completion will be in 2016.
