MAD Architects Unveils New Office in China for an International Fashion Firm
Soon to be under construction in the Chinese port city of Xiamen and anchored by a 161,000-square-foot edifice, is the headquarters for international clothing firm Xinhee. For MAD Architect's latest project, they bridge the gap between the two worlds of fashion and environmentally responsible architecture, all while providing multipurpose public and private spaces. The grounds for this HQ will occupy nearly 657,000 square feet, but despite it's size, this complex will be highly energy-efficient, utilizing rooftop solar panels and a semi-translucent exterior to capture natural light. The atrium’s footbridge will not only provide improved air circulation but also act as a runway for fashion shows promoting the brands’ latest offerings. The Xinhee Design Center is expected to be in use in 2017.
