Office Buildings

Land Rover Regional Offices, Shanghai, China

2013 bis 2018

This dynamic two tower structures + urban complex, which is home to the regional offices of iconic British brand Land Rover, was meticulously thought-out and designed to reflect the local culture, create a people-centric yet unique biophilic environment, and with the idea of a porous urban fabric in mind. Serving as a powerful metamorphic and symbolic tool—the buildings transform with the city’s atmosphere through the application of a custom fritted glass pattern which emulates Chinese bamboo when seen from afar. The patterned exterior surface not only pays tribute to the importance of bamboo in Chinese culture, but contributes to the overall efficiency of the building by providing natural shading and privacy for occupants.
