SPARCH relocates in Beijing

Sparch has relocated its Beijing studio to Raffles City, the mixed-use project it designed and built for Singaporean developer CapitaLand. The 30-strong team from Sparch leaves its previous location in a converted boiler room for the 10th floor of the Raffles City Office Tower.

Raffles City comprises 150,000 sq m of offices, retail, serviced apartments and residential accommodation at the junction of Beijing’s East 2nd Ring Road and Dongzhimen Neidaijie. The ideal location takes advantage of direct links to Asia’s largest transport hub at Dongzhimen.

Quickly becoming a centre of public life in Dongzhimen, Raffles City’s main square is animated by a colourful play of light pixels framing a large public LED screen. Inside, the shopping mall features an unusual cantilevering structure nicknamed the ‘Crystal Lotus’. This crystalline structure encloses a series of feature cafes as it rises from the basement food court to support a sweeping glass roof.
