King Wai Commercial Project



Location: Tianjin, China
Designed in: 2012
Size: 117,832m²
Client: King Wai Landmark
The King Wai Commercial Project is located in the Binhai New Zone of Tianjin, minutes from the Bohai Sea. Inspired by Tianjin’s large seaport, the exterior features elements of seafaring vessels. The east facade takes on the form of bowed hull, which is simple, strong, and iconic. The north, south, and west facades’ boxy faces imitate the lines of shipping containers. Inside, a central, sky-lit atrium connects commercial spaces in an open, inviting environment. The design celebrates the success of Tianjin’s trade through its seaport and the importance it will play for the local economy in the years to come.
