The new showroom for Zhongtai Holding's office and retail centre in Beijing was to be a sister project to accompany the one in Shanghai also executed by zlgdesign in collaboration with Zhongtai hldings of Shanghai. Wood slats and naturally finished pavement were used to quickly upgrade the adjoining buildings in this area, some very ancient but looking tired and needing new finishes.

The facility is located in the famous art district of Beijing zone 758. The facade is a high quality glazed wall, flanking and concealing the older dilapidated walls of the existing buildings. This proejct has won the PAM Award for overseas architecture. The project took less than 6 months to complete. [first published 31st August 2005]
