About Fraser Suites Chengdu

Located in the heart of the city’s central business district, Yanlord Landmark is a mixed-use development in what has become a key economic, transportation and communication hub in Southwestern China.

The tower forms are based on a simple and efficient floor plate. The form and identity of the complex is created by the cladding of the simple tower volume in a glass façade articulated as a continuous wrapped surface. Formally the tower façade serves to unify tower and podium into a single cohesive architectural expression on the city’s skyline, while clearly identifying major points of entry at the scale of the pedestrian. Alluding to the local geography, the metaphor of water carving through the many valleys surrounding the city of Chengdu drove the design and configuration of the retail podium. Carved-out niches became plazas, entries, or setbacks drawing the vibrancy of the city through the site. The porosity at the ground level activates the interior spaces of the site promoting an exciting and successful mixed-use environment.
