EID Architecture looks to the traditional side of Shanghai when designing CITIC Pacific‘s high-rise residential neighborhood. The Shanghai downtown area will see six new residential towers and amenities through the development.

Designs for the building encourage social interactions through its amenities, which include leisure facilities, a spa, meeting and conference spaces, and roof gardens overhead. Undulating terraces on the top of each building promote a sense of community in addition to responding to the site’s preservation of sunlight.

In vast contrast to neo-classical residential towers often seen in China, CITIC Pacific Residence aims to create a residential design sensible to the site and its context. It is unique and memorable, reflecting the ethos of evolving city of Shanghai, said EID design principal Ping Jiang, AIA.

In a beautiful combination of natural and artificial, the landscape design incorporates the “duality of Chinese architecture tradition.” The fluidity of the garden space mixes with the geometric structure of the residential buildings, resulting in a contemporary yet culturally inspired project.

Pacific Residence Phase II also comprises small retail buildings and a kindergarten along the main street. Renovated Shikumen – common land houses in Shanghai — served for the new retail buildings, while the design of the kindergarten borrowed from that vernacular.
