Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects has been commissioned to build an innovative new skyscraper in the Bin Hai Seaport City near the coast two hours southeast of Beijing. The new hotel/residential tower will bring to the area both its 5-star hotel rooms and luxurious one and two bedroom apartments. The tower’s unique design consists of three intertwined cylindrical components clad in green glass. The three intertwined cylinders are inspired by the twisting forms of ancient cypress trees. This tri-part structural form rotates 2 degrees per floor and creates a dramatic silhouette that looks different from every angle and variation of light. The design gives residents and guests panoramic views of the surrounding area. An exclusive club with restaurants, bars and entertaining areas will be located on the skyscraper’s top three floors. Completion planned for in 2008, to coincide with the Beijing Olympics.
