21 Cake Headquarters / People’s Architecture Office

Architects: People’s Architecture Office (He Zhe, James Shen, Zang Feng)
Location: Legend Town Creative Industry Park, Ciyunsi Bridge, Chaoyang District, Beijing
Design Team: Liu Xiujuan, Liang Shaoyi, Chen Yixuan, Emily Kwak, Cui Yujing
Project Year: 2012
Photographs: Courtesy of People’s Architecture Office
Project Area: 457.0 sqm
Client: 21 Cake

The design for the headquarters of 21 Cake, a popular gourmet cake franchise, relies on the interaction of the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue. Selected walls of the office, namely those along circulation areas, are made of laminated colored glass. These glass panels of primary colors are ‘layered’ to create a full spectrum of changing colors.

As one walks through the spaces of the office, changing vantage points in combination with natural and artificial light and reflections produce dramatic effects. A double height central atrium topped with a skylight brings in light through the layers of color along the staircase and glass bridge on the second floor.

IKEA is a bit slow in the hypermarket sector. I doubt they can achieve much inroads given Carrefour and Walmart had a major head start.

Reports that Jean Nouvel has beaten Hadid and Gehry for National Art Museum of China

Jean Nouvel, the French architect behind some of the industry’s most talked-about projects - including One New Change, a brown glass retail development next to St Paul’s Cathedral in London, and Gasometer A in Vienna, the transformation of a former gas tank into a dramatic residential facility - has been tipped as the winner of an international competition to design the new National Art Museum of China in Beijing.

The architects shortlisted for the project were Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Moshe Safdie, however a ‘well-placed source’ has informed the Architectural Record that Nouvel has been awarded the project. An official announcement is yet to be made and Ateliers Jean Nouvel had not replied to a comment request at the time of publication.

At 1.3million sq ft, the project is due to sit next to Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei’s celebrated Beijing Stadium, also known as the Bird’s Nest, and is allegedly designed to outshine the treasured Olympic Stadium. The immense building will replace the existing, outdated building that currently acts as the National Art Museum of China.

Hadid’s concepts for the project were predictably curvaceous, with draped folds characterising the building’s façade and three clearly individual volumes - two masses sitting atop a banded ground-floor level. In contrast, Gehry’s proposal had a basic cuboid form with a series of cylindrical forms erupting from the centre and organic silhouettes of trees gracing the exterior, finished with abstract patterns and a translucent façade. Nouvel’s (allegedly winning) design is yet to be released.

Swire keen on China expansion
The Standard
Friday, September 21, 2012

Swire Properties (1972) is undeterred by China's economic slowdown and remains determined to follow through with its original plan to invest 12 billion yuan (HK$14.76 billion) on expanding to more top-tier mainland cities.

At the formal opening of its 4 billion yuan INDIGO project in Beijing yesterday, chief executive Martin Cubbon said the mainland economy is "still growing," as spending at the firm's shopping malls across the border are on the rise.

"Swire will not slow down its China investment," Cubbon stressed.

Spanning 1.89 million square meters, INDIGO - a 50-50 joint venture with Beijing-based Sino-Ocean Land (3377) - comprises an 87,281 sq m shopping mall, a 55,320 sq m office tower and a 369-room business hotel.

Other mainland properties under the Swire umbrella - also commercial schemes - include Sanitun Village in Beijing, and Taikoo Hui in Guangzhou.

The Beijing metro line 14, which will stop at the INDIGO mall, is expected to be complete by 2014.

Swire also has two projects in the pipeline. They are the Daci Temple scheme in Chengdu, Sichuan province, also a joint venture with Sino-Ocean, which is expected to be completed in 2014, and the Dazhongli project in Shanghai - being developed with HKR International (0480). This is expected to be finished by 2016.

The Chengdu and Shanghai projects will cost 4 billion yuan and 8 billion yuan, respectively.

By 2016, Swire will own 1.25 million sq m of space in the mainland, accounting for one-third of the company's total portfolio, Cubbon said, adding Swire's total investments in China will reach 30 billion yuan.

INDIGO deputy general manager Clarence Lee said the five-story mall, comparable in size to Festival City in Kowloon Tong, has more than 170 shops, and is 85 percent occupied.

Wow amazing. Never saw such a big and clean train station. It reminds me more of an airport terminal.

The best train station I've ever used without a doubt. It's huge yet feels small, only one hall for departures, a perfect design IMO.

Check out the Shanghai Hongqiao railway station Ive been to both and the one in Shanghai is much nicer. Timeless, classy and understated design, huge, airy interior spaces.

Hot land deals pick up in Beijing, surges seen in other cities

BEIJING, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Beijing may see its hot land market reappear, as the capital city recently reported skyrocketing deals nearing the total of all land deals in the first six months of the year.

Ten plots of land changed hands in Beijing in the seven day period ending Sept. 26, marking deals of 11.87 billion yuan (1.88 billion U.S. dollars) -- a figure comparable to 14.49 billion yuan in land deals seen in the first six months, according to data from the city's land reserve center.

Beijing has seen an increase in land deals since August along with obvious price rises, said Zhang Dawei, an analyst with Beijing-based Zhongyuan Real Estate.

The robust momentum, as demonstrated during the recent week, shows that developers now have "passion" in bidding for land, and the land market on the whole is becoming hot, said Zhang.

As there are still three or four land plots awaiting bidding in September, the total deals for this month in Beijing are expected to further increase, he said.

Increased land deals have also been reported in other major cities in August and September, including Hangzhou, Nanjing and Wenzhou, leading to speculation that the government may tighten control measures.

On Sept. 4, the land resources bureau of Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province, issued a notice that the city plans to put 26 land plots with a total area of 858,000 square meters up for bidding "in the near future."

In Zhejiang Province's boomtown of Wenzhou, authorities held a promotion in late August, recommending 52 plots for bidding, the largest package seen in the city in recent years.

In an effort to tame skyrocketing home prices, the government has restricted home purchases since 2010 while requiring higher down payments and introducing property taxes, resulting in a cooled-down real estate market.

However, housing prices have climbed since March, fueled by the central bank's moves to boost lending and buoy the slowing economy.

Average new home prices in 100 surveyed cities rose for the third straight month to 8,738 yuan per square meter in August, an increase of 0.24 percent from July, signalling a moderately warming real estate market, according to data released by the China Index Academy (CIA).

Premier Wen Jiabao reiterated earlier this month that the country still needs to resolutely curb speculative property investment as controls on the real estate sector are still in a "critical period."
