Shanghai High-Rise / EXH Design

EXH Design was hired to redesign the façades of high-rises in one of the most active urban areas in .   With the plans of the buildings already halfway through government approval, EXH was allowed little leeway in trying to change the existing plans.   Instead, EXH turned their attention to “sculpting” the building’s surface.  Taking a geometrical approach, the new façade aims to create a dynamic effect that will become a strong architectural expression for the surrounding areas.

Shanghai Roche Expansion / EXH Design

For the extension of the Roche Pharmaceuticals building, EXH Design created a contemporary office environment with more links with light, air and outdoor space.  For the first stage of site expansion, the existing office building will be extended with two new, four level, parallel wings.  The building is made using reinforced concrete and has achieved the highest energy efficiency standards by using  triple glazing with thermally-isolated window frames, external sun shades, a green roof, and geothermal technology.  The two storey linking blocks tie the buildings together and house multi-functional traffic and communication areas such as reception spaces, cafes, post and exhibition spaces, and all meeting rooms, boardrooms and conference rooms.

Ordos Hotel / EXH Design

Our friends at EXH Design shared their design of a hotel in , which is scheduled to be completed within a few months, with us.  Taking inspiration from the yurt, the circular tent-like dwelling of Mongolian peoples,  the team transformed the traditional scheme to meet the demands of modern life.   The design “makes an accommodation experience in different from anywhere else and arouses a local cultural interest,” explained the architects.
