CIXI | Shangri-La Hotel | 208m | 56 fl | U/C

Ssiger International Plaza Phase II

Cixi City, China

This 59-story multi-family residential and hotel tower responds to its site with a diagonal façade that addresses city hall immediately to the southeast. Vertical openings in the tower’s form relieve the structural burdens of high wind forces while opening up the interiors to natural light and views.

Cixi City’s hot climate led designers to orient and shade the building to minimize heat gain. Vertical fins clad in copper protect the building skin from the sun and contrast with the clear glass curtain wall that encloses the tower apertures.

Dramatic, multi-story elements span horizontally across the tower, creating select “sky-loft” units with glazed roofs. At the top of the tower, the Crown Plaza Hotel embraces views of downtown Cixi and the nearby mountains.

Project Facts

Completion Year: 2011
Site Area: 1.50 hectares
Project Area: 140,000 m2
Building Height: 208 m
Number of Stories: 56

Seems the foundation's ready for construction.

I think this is Shang's first hotel in Cixi.

Thanks zorg.

It's designed by SOM. By having the holes it shrinks some space but makes much better views from the rooms.

If I read it correctly on SOM's homepage the brownish cladding must be copper, would also match the info at Emporis. Very nice project, love the futuristic design.

BTW: location can be found here (street map seems to be off, but satellite is correct):

Its close to Ningbo and somehow part of Ningbo's jurisdiction while being an independent city or so. Never really understood how all this works in China, maybe someone can give a little more insight...
