SOHO trusted AIM Architecture to design a shopping center as a new type of office in Beijing, China. Designed on a 25,000 square meter site, the architectural firm was able to finish the project in 2015. The project is later known as a co-working space under SOHO’s 3Q brand.

AIM Architecture went with a bolder approach in designing the building. That being the case, strong colors and patterns were added to avoid a dull-looking atmosphere of the typical shopping mall cum office space.

In The Park section, many live bamboos adorn the area where glass meeting rooms are situated.

The stairs frame the space as a venue for events or even lectures, presenting a space which is available for both personal consumption and community development.

Every occupant of those desks can back from a co-working space to a commercial one with ease since the office space is combined with the shopping mall.
