DOS architects named winners of Beijing mixed-use building competition

London-based DOS architects have won an international competition to design a “unique and iconic” mixed-use building in the Lize financial business district in Beijing.

Along with four other European architecture firms, DOS architects was invited to take part in the competition set up by the site’s promoter, international asset management firm Growth Wealth Assets (GWA) last March.

DOS’ ambitious proposal, which could be described as a ‘cantilevering courtyard tower’ is located in the Lize financial business district in the north-east of Beijing and will be the firm’s first project in China.

The development will comprise 219,000 sq m of mixed-use space including a hotel, office space, retail and residential units. The project, which has a budget of £780m is due to start early next year and complete in 2017.

“The development that is to be built based upon the winning design of this competition represents a typical investment of Grow Wealth Assets. Located in the heart of Lize financial business district, the building will be an opportunity for DOS architects to showcase their innovation to both the local and international business community, GOW said.
