The New Beijing # 11 | SOHO Shangdu

Completed in 2007, the Shangdu edition of SOHO is located in the CBD area of Beijing and was designed by Melbourne based LAB Architecture Studio. LAB was also responsible for the landmark Melbourne project Federation Square and over the last decade or so has completed numerous projects around the world.

Containing commercial offices, residential apartments and retail, SOHO Shangdu is another large mixed use development of 170,000m2. However, it stands in stark contrast to the surrounding mixed use developments that are generally clad in regular, low grade vertical curtain wall systems and the ever present tan colored stone. The sloping, triangulated facade provides a bracing alternative along the western edge of Jintong West Road cialis sans ordonnance. Standby for some interior shots – coming soon.
