UNStudio 正在全球布局多个新工作室，UNStudio 亚洲 (上海工作室和香港工作室) 借此机会分享其过去十二年以来在当地的一系列已建成项目成就。
As UNStudio expands with new offices opening around the globe, UNStudio Asia (with offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong) takes this opportunity to share our regional achievements with projects in China that have been realized over the past twelve years.
Let's starts from Hangzhou, with the Raffles City......
Hangzhou Raffles City
Raffles City Hangzhou is one of the city’s landmark projects. The almost 400,000,m2 mixed-use complex integrates retail, offices, hotel and serviced apartments and offers 24/7 services for visitors and residents alike.
Reflecting the movement of the nearby Qiantang River, the tower design features awave-like motion. These concentric waves increase in their dynamism, starting calmly at the base and building up more vigorously along the vertical axis.
Located at the core of the Qianjiang New Town CBD, Raffles City is surrounded by the Civic Centre, Hangzhou Grand Theatre and the Hangzhou International Conference Centre. It is well connected to the surrounding business district and seamlessly integrated with local culture. Since completion in 2017 Raffles City has been praised as an ‘all-in-one’ destination for working, living and leisure.
Shanghai, Xintiandi Plaza
Shanghai Xintiandi Plaza is located in the heart of Shanghai, along the well-known Huai Hai Road, and functions as a gateway to the buzzing Xintiandi area. Following its completion in 2019, it became one of the most influential renovation projects in the Huaihai commercial area.
As with Lane 189, the design steps away from the organisation of a typical mall, towards a vertical city centre layout that provides opportunities for shopping, strolling, eating, gathering and relaxing.
‘Creating a social place’ was the key concept for the renovation of the Xintiandi Plaza. The original closed department store was therefore converted to an open, bright and transparent shopping mall, making it easier for people to see into the interior and inviting them in. An outdoor terrace garden provides space for socialising, while the roof garden enables clear views up and down the Huaihai Road. Xintiandi plaza has become a venue for new international and young fashion brands and a popular place for social gathering.
Zhongshan, Marina & Clubhouse
When UNStudio was appointed to design the Zhongshan Marina, it was the first and only marina with a private port of immigration in all of China. The marina clubhouse is part of the 50,000 m2 masterplan which comprises a marina with direct access to the Xi River, a service building, high-end residential villas and the supporting infrastructure, such as the CIQP building, a bridge, road sand surrounding external dykes.
The project is designed to resemble the experience of being on a yacht, or a luxury cruise. On the one hand it forms a retreat where people can disconnect from their busy daily lives and enjoy tranquillity and relaxation. On the other, it offers excitement and activity, alongside opportunities to escape and explore.
OPPO Flagship Store

UNStudio为OPPO设计的广州超级旗舰店和北京王府井旗舰店已经于2020年落成开业。广州超级旗舰店位于广州天河区正佳广场，室内总面积为606平方米，外立面约 300 平方米。
In 2020 UNStudio completed a new super flagship store in Guangzhou for OPPO, as well as a prominent new store in Beijing. OPPO Guangzhou is a 606m2 Super Flagship Store which is located at Zhengjia Plaza in the Tianhe district of Guangzhou.
“城市公园“是OPPO 广州超级旗舰店的核心设计理念。广州的历史和现代相互交融，是一座具有前瞻性的现代化城市。OPPO广州超级旗舰店所面临的挑战在于：设计和策略既要符合广州的城市特质，又要代表 OPPO 的品牌形象。
‘Urban Park’ is the key design concept of OPPO Guangzhou super flagship store. Guangzhou is a wonderful mix of a historical and a modern, forward-looking city. The challenge of designing an OPPO store within this city is to develop a contextual reaction and strategy that respects the qualities of the city, while also representing OPPO’s brand values.
With the ambition to create a gathering space that blurs the boundaries between public space and commerce for OPPO’s customers, UNStudio introduced an ‘Urban Park’ concept. This concept creates an inclusive environment that meets the behavioral needs of the various people who visit the store.
模块化管件是外立面设计的主要元素。在立面整体方案设计过程中，我们研究了多种几何策略。经过对不同模块尺寸和元素的探究，最终选择以整体模块化管件构成立面外墙，这样的设计，既可以体现 OPPO 品牌标志的转角曲线，又可以吸引访客走进店内一探究竟。
The moduler tube is the key element of the façade design. For the overall composition of the facade elements, multiple geometric strategies were studied. Following the exploration of different volumetric options, a large, sweeping folding gesture was chosen which echoes the corner curve of the OPPO brand logo, while guiding visitors towards the entrance to the store.

Flowing and uninterrupted movementis the key concept of the interior design for OPPO Guangzhou. Achieving a fluid space in a flowing, uninterrupted movement - where an in tuitive sequence of different areas enables customers to experience and interact with the products- was one of the key aims of the interior design.

鉴于OPPO 广州旗舰店的成功合作, UNStudio 受邀将设计理念带到OPPO北京王府井旗舰店中。OPPO 北京王府井旗舰店包含上下两层空间，总面积为 428 平方米。路人透过双层高的全玻璃立面，可以看到店内全新的陈列体验空间。
Due to the successful cooperation on OPPO Guangzhou, UNStudio was invited to carry over the same design DNA to the prominent new Wangfujing Avenue OPPO store in Beijing. The Beijing store has a total area of 428m2, spread over two floors. This divisionis made visible to passers by means of a fully glazed, double height facade.

In alignment with the Guangzhou Super Flagship, the ambition of the design for the Beijing store was to express ‘Beauty through Technology’. In Beijing, the ‘Urban Park’ remains the driving concept, while a sculptured staircase provides a distinctive feature within the store. This staircase links the two floors of the store in a continuous flow that becomes part of the customer journey.
Wuhan Hanjie Wanda Plaza
In 2011, UNStudio was invited to design the Hanjie Wanda Plaza, which was realized in 2013. It is a luxury-shopping plaza in Wuhan, which houses international brand stores, world-class boutiques, catering outlets and cinemas.
UNStudio’s approach to the design was to combine contemporary and traditional design elements into one concept. Whilst the interior creates two different, yet integrated atmospheres, the facade design focuses on achieving a dynamic effect reflecting the handcrafted combination of two materials: polished stainless steel and patterned glass. The additional dynamic facade lighting recreates the effect of movement and reflection in water, or the sensuous folds of silk fabric.
Guorui • Fairyland
In 2015, the Fairyland complex was realised in Beijing. It is a residential complex with villas scattered along the riverside in Miyun area. The contemporary and unique living compound combines modern and classical living, with each of the villas enjoying its own unique sculptural characteristics.
Fairyland is a multi-generational complex in a tranquil landscape setting that is now considered an ideal living complex for both young and old. Located at one and a half hours drive from city centre of Beijing, the villas also function as weekend retreats for families, where the rooftop gardens, swimming pools and access to nature can be fully enjoyed.
Shanghai Jing An Plaza
Jing An Ronghui Plaza is a mix of residential and offices. Two towers are linked by a retail plinth that crosses the site. Large glass openings allow natural light into the buildings, creating optimal interior lighting conditions for the different functions and ensuring spectacular city views. On the lower levels the buildings connect to a park setting with greenery and water features.
With its small-scale office spaces and convenient apartments, Jing An Ronghui Plaza has attracted new startups and young entrepreneurs. Previously an old block embedded within the core of the city centre, the new Jing An Ronghui has changed people’s perceptions of the area, and it now seen as a new mixed-use destination with an improved quality of life for its residents.

2014年, UNStudio 受邀参加了上海英国皇家建筑师协会 (RIBA) “上海之窗” 项目活动，并为其设计了位于上海新天地时尚购物中心的“镜廊”艺术装置。
As part of the ‘RIBA Shanghai Windows Project 2014’ UNStudio was invited by China Xintiandi to create a gateway installation for the Xintiandi Style Retail Mall in Shanghai.
Located along Madang Road and framing the entrance to the mall, the project conceptually explores the role of display in Shanghai: the symbiotic relationship of cultural reflections that occur between the city’s occupants and the urban landscape.
As an extended 30 meter long corridor archway that frames the entrance to Xintiandi Style Retail Mall, the project uses a single architectural gesture that transitions from wall to ceiling to wall, not only tracing pedestrians’ movements along its trajectory, but translating them into a reflection that revolves and inverts around the visitors as they walk through the installation. The pedestrians’ reflections move between a sequence of three ‘phases’ of context: retail, ground, and urban landscape. The large scale mirrors mounted at each end of the installation act as concentration points, capturing the whole lapse of the effect, and combining it into one moving image. The result is a reinterpretation of the relationship between urban context and the viewer, binding these together in a cultural setting of the retail, the city, and its inhabitants.
Qingdao World Horticultural Expo
In 2011, UNStudio won the competition of the Qingdao World Horticultural Expo Theme pavilion, which opened to visitors from all around the world in 2014. Surrounded by mountains on three sides, with extensive forest coverage and only a 10 minute drive to the sea, the pavilion also became a new weekend destination for local families to escape the city and immerse themselves in nature.
The design of the Theme Pavilion focuses on the relationship between science and nature. Whilst scientific achievement serves as an inspiration, the buildings become gently absorbed in the landscape, whilst maintaining their individual identities.
The architecture responds to the dominant skyline of the mountains surrounding the Expo masterplan by means of carefully composed roofscapes on the individual buildings. These roofs are envisioned as elevated landscaped plateaus, providing panoramic views, which extend far intothe surrounding landscape.
Shanghai Hailun Centre
As a dynamic and international city, Shanghai is known to embrace international design and, to date, UNStudio has completed four projects in the city. Hailun Centre and Jing An Ronghui Plaza were the first two UNStudio projects to be realised in Shanghai.
Hailun Plaza is a mixed-use office and retail development consisting of a 33-storey tower and a series of smaller mixed-use pavilions. The tower building organises outdoor spaces of different scales and provides a platform for a variety of urban activities.
Hailun Plaza received a LEED Gold certificate and green building two stars certificate, and since completion is fully occupied by various companies, retail and restaurant brands. People working in the office tower make full use of the programmes housed in the smaller pavilions, where they can enjoy lunch, dinner, or meet with friends. The public space of the courtyard is also much-used place to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Due to the convenient connection with three metro lines, the public space of the inner courtyard also attracts families who visit during the weekends.
Shanghai Lane 189
Lane 189 is a boutique lifestyle shopping mall in Shanghai. It combines retail, restaurant and office spaces. The aim of the design was to convert a typical mall organisation into a modern ‘vertical citycentre’, whilst retaining the historic Shanghai Lane style and culture.
The unique hexagonal grid facade creates an ‘eye catching’ effect as the articulated geometry of the facade constantly changes when viewed from different perspectives. Large double-height openings present the interior programme to the outside world. These ‘urban eyes’ simultaneously create large display platforms for products whilst providing balconies with views to the surroundings.
Inside Lane 189 accommodate numerous traditional Shanghai Lane craft workshops and ‘old time’ restaurants serving traditional shanghai food within a contemporary, vibrant and bright mall. After completion, customised events were also introduced on the plateaus and plaza areas, turning the Lane 189 mall into a lively shopping, dining and entertainment venue.
