Raffles City Beijing, an award-winning key component of a global brand owned, developed, and operated by CapitaLand, is located at the junction of Dongzhimen Neidajie and Beijing’s 2nd Ring Road at the heart of Beijing’s business district. The organization of the building programs is designed to be straightforward, well-connected and clearly expressed. There are four components: the retail podium, residential apartments, the Ascott serviced residence and the office tower. The retail podium with its five-storey sweeping day-lit enclosure and glass ‘Crystal Lotus’ is the defining centre piece of Raffles City, and combined with the office lobby’s tessellated glass envelope is a statement of the project’s ambition and commitment to excellence in design and construction.
The design team was involved in the initial conception of the masterplan, the architecture, public interior design, facades and landscaping through to construction.
