It was great to hear Stella McCartney’s new store in Beijing opened this week. Expedition worked closely with the lead designers to take the unique project from conceptual ideas to a stage at which it could be feasibly constructed.
The new store, contained over 2 floors of a large cantilevered box, exhibits a distinctive façade covered in three dimensional rhombus tiles made of recyclable aluminium. Playing on natural light cast from the glass ceiling of the mall, the facets of the tile play create different shadows and patterns throughout the day making for an enriching architectural experience.
Also being the first Platinum LEED certified commercial development in China the project exemplified the whole team’s commitment to sustainability.
