Leeza SOHO’s interior space at CTBUH Tall + Urban Innovation Conference 2021

Following recognition with two ‘Awards for Excellence’ from
the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), Leeza SOHO in Beijing
is in the running for the ‘Interior Space Award’ at the CTBUH Awards 2021.

Founded in 1969, the non-profit CTBUH is the world’s leading
resource focussing on the inception, design, construction, and operation of
tall buildings and future cities. The Awards aspire to provide a more
comprehensive view of these important structures, while advocating for
improvements in every aspect of performance, including those that have the
greatest positive impact on the individuals who use these buildings and the
cities they inhabit.

Leeza SOHO tower for SOHO China anchors the new
Fengtai business district – a growing financial and transport hub between the
city centre and the recently opened Beijing Daxing International Airport to the
south.

Adjacent to the business district’s rail station at the
intersection of five new lines currently under construction on Beijing’s Subway
network, Leeza SOHO’s site is diagonally dissected by an underground subway
service tunnel.

Straddling this tunnel, the tower’s design divides its
volume into two halves enclosed by a single facade. The space between these two
halves extends the full height of the tower, creating the world’s tallest
atrium at 194m which rotates as the tower rises to realign the upper floors
with Lize road to the north.

Leeza SOHO’s double-insulated, unitised glass curtain wall
system steps the glazing units on each floor at an angle, providing narrow
ventilating registers to draw outside air through operable cavities; creating
extremely efficient environmental control for each floor.

Targeting LEED Gold certification, Leeza SOHO’s energy
management system monitors real-time environmental control and energy
efficiency. The tower includes an insulating green roof with photovoltaic
array; 2,680 bicycle parking spaces, with lockers, shower facilities and
dedicated charging spaces.

Project Architect Philipp Ostermaier will showcase Leeza
SOHO at a live presentation taking place during the CTBUH Tall + Urban
Innovation Conference on 18-20 May 2021. More information on the conference via
