Design + Architecture

A design concept that is modern and professional

Inspired by the area’s liveliness, ZhongGuanCun SOHO is envisioned by ministry of Design as an environment that is dynamic spatially and experientially. The entire building serves two primary purposes: for retail, as well as business office. Each of these portions possesses its own distinct identity, and yet all share a similar design concept that is modem, yet professional

Intelligent environmentally-friendly double-layer glass curtain walls

  • Comprised of an outside single-layer curtain wall, an inner Low-E curtain wall, as well as sun shading, air intake and output installations;
  • Using the ‘chimney effect’ and the principle of air heat compression, it draws fresh air into the room while moving the dirty air out, thereby eradicating dust from the room;
  • Energy savings of up to 30%. Reduces waste and second circulation, at the same time regulating moisture levels in winter and heat insulation in summer;
  • Sound insulation and noise-reduction features can reach up to 42dp (traditionally 32dp), creating a quiet and comfortable work environment.
  • Temperature sensors are installed on the sun-shading curtains allowing automatic adjustment of indoor light levels.

Elegant and scenic retail and F&B areas

The retail and F&B areas sit over four floors and are linked by a breathtaking skylight and sculptural spiral stairwell.The vast majority of space boasts panoramic views of the surrounding city,with strong visual presence from passing foot and vehicular traffic.

Commercial space with ultimate functionality

The commercial spaces above are bathed in natural light and form pleasant and progressive work environments. Spacious public areas link each of these units with the lift lobbies and project a modern and technologically savvy environment.
