Franshion Properties (China) Ltd
FCBStudios were commissioned by Franshion, a Beijing headquartered developer to provide 12,000sqm of exhibition and office space with an agenda to develop a cutting edge low carbon building for Meixi Lake Eco-City.
The focus of the design and brief was to physically showcase innovative building technologies in the public exhibition areas of the building as well as being designed to achieve the highest standards in BREEAM and China’s 3 Star green building assessment.
The exemplar building provides a show case hub for innovation and knowledge transfer for low carbon construction, but will also communicate the strategies and sustainability initiatives of the Meixi Lake Eco-City.
The city itself comprises nearly 15 million square metres of development, an estimated £6bn investment and will eventually have a population of more than 300,000.
