Located off of the 5th ring road in Southeast
Beijing, the Daxing Mixed-use Development is
intended to be the anchor project for a future
retail center in Beijing. The site is located
at the southern edge of the district fronting
a new urban green corridor. The project which
consists of 150,000 sm retail, 180,000 sm
office and 35,000 sm hotel, strives to serve
as both an urban stitch with the green space
to the south as well as a commercial threshold
into the retail center to the north. The site
is split into two plots and utilizes a common
language to unify the development, which are
office towers on the west and a horizontally
dominated retail program to the east. The
project plays formally with north / south
striated, geological forms which emerge out of
the landscape to the south while maintaining a
more defined urban edge on the north.
