From the architect. MissionIn February 2011, Jacques Ferrier Architecture?s firm won a competition held by public real estate developer Shanghai Guang Dian Real Estate for the creation of an office complex and stores along the Shang Ao Dang canal, located in the Xuhui district of south western Shanghai. This neighbourhood has been expanding since the metro line was built. The project was delivered in the summer of 2015. JFA, the architect responsible for the project, handled the studies, from validating the local office's studies to architectural quality monitoring during construction.

An urban project in a unique landscapeThe buildings' identity is defined by an interplay of folds and cuts, which give a variety of perspectives, views, light and heights.

Urban landscape and topographyWe have developed an urban topography concept to create a "built landscape" effect, where architecture and nature are fused and blended. The site is located by the edge of a canal, which was previously hidden away from the public eye. One of the key points of our proposal was replacing the grey walls along the canal with a planted embankment. The tree-lined embankment is now a public walking path along the canal. Here, nature reclaims its rightful place in the heart of the city.

The office foundation is also treated as a landscape, a tree-covered relief with some parts turned towards the ground like an invitation to run across it. Local residents can even walk along a path on the roof of the ground floor. This foundation creates very clear divisions and gives an individual identity to the office space project. Next to the canal, the façad...
