Situated within the Danzishi Central Business District, IO is leading the design of Sinosteel Buildings comprising approximately 150,000 sqm of dedicated high-end retail and entertainment area. Working within the parameters of local planning constraints, the design aims to provide a cohesive solution that is both pragmatic and architecturally innovative within the context. By creating a series of terraced retail courtyards surrounding sheltered garden plazas and linked together by elevated walkways, the buildings are connected by common features whilst allowing for distinct architectural languages to differentiate their respective identities.
