The project echoes traditional Chinese architecture in its use of courtyards, axial planning and symmetrical massing. 

Located in the heart of Beijing along Chang'An Avenue near Tiananmen Square, this mixed-use project combines 900,000 sqm of first class commercial space with the 800-room Grand Hyatt Hotel, service apartments and a major shopping centre. Ranging from 13 to 22 storeys, the buildings are organized along an east-west axis around three formal courtyards which contain extensive water features, paved areas, trees and contemporary artwork. The street level provides main access to the 100,000 sqm retail mall whilst the podium provides access to the hotel, service apartments and the office towers. A subway station connects directly to the retail mall while a 3-storey underground car park serves the whole complex. The Oriental Plaza echoes traditional Chinese architecture in its use of courtyards, axial planning and symmetrical massing. The square and circular building elements are differentiated in pink granite and reflective glass while the fenestration is conceived as a contemporary interpretation of classical Chinese motifs.
