Siemens Shanghai

The new Siemens administration building is located in the Yangpu District in Shanghai. The building complex creates a modern, contemporary and attractive quarter in historical reference to the “Li-Longs”. The complex consists of four buildings, which together have a gross floor area of 35,000 m².

Facades, Highly Innovative and Highly Transparent

These rectangular, cubic structures, which are arranged offset to each other, create a multifaceted interplay of open spaces, small squares and water areas, which alternate with artistically designed green areas. Some of the clear-cut cubic buildings have plinths in front of them, which in turn contain interior courtyards.

Special features of the complex are the highly innovative, double-skin, fully-elemental standard facade and a highly transparent special rope facade construction in the main access lobby area.
