Ssiger International Plaza Phase II

This 59-story, multi-family residential and hotel tower responds to its site with a diagonal facade that addresses city hall immediately to the southeast. Vertical openings in the tower’s form relieve the structural burdens of high wind forces while opening up the interiors to natural light and views.

The city's hot climate led designers to orient and shade the building to minimize heat gain. Vertical fins clad in copper protect the building skin from the sun and contrast with the clear glass curtain wall that encloses the tower's apertures.

Dramatic, multi-story elements span horizontally across the tower, creating select “sky-loft” units with glazed roofs. At the top of the tower, the hotel embraces views of downtown Cixi and the nearby mountains.
