Glass office SOHO in Shanghai, China by AIM Architecture

An all glass and mirror inner cladding exposes the infrastructure of SOHO’s new office building in Shanghai. The glass creates manifold reflections of the sales models and meeting rooms, while leaving the original height and structure in view. This creates a ‘double reality’ that merges with the stunning views of downtown Shanghai.

Membrane ceilings create extra attention for the models. Light and surfaces reflect throughout the space, even further diffused by half see through mirrors. Some of the floors are islands of stone or carpet, to create static moments to offset this sea of reflectivity.

As SOHO rents out the offices in this building in bare shell state, the main design idea is to show the customers what they are actually getting, and at the same time add a layer of inspiring luxury to it.

The glass only approach allows creating a complexity that emerges from a simple choice. That is what makes this project bold and layered at the same time.

This project by AIM Architecture is part of Fuxing Plaza, a large mixed-use complex (140.000m2) that hopefully will boost more energy and surprises for the city.
