Beijing Financial Street was once the Jincheng Ward during the Yuan Dynasty. The 1993 Masterplan by the State Council placed many national financial institutions in this area. In 2005, the master plan approved by the State Council clearly defined Beijing Financial Street as the national financial management center and established its core position in the capital's financial industry. Financial Street plays an important role in serving major national strategies, financial reforms and enhancing the opening-up. Beijing Financial Street is becoming a national financial management center with international influence.
Located at the northwest corner of the world-renowned Financial Street, Beijing Jinjia Plaza is designed with the concept of "architecture of the city, architecture of the people, and architecture of innovation". The design respects the urban environment and integrates communal space within city. The design takes full consideration of the open space, building form, energy saving, economical efficiency, and the whole process collaboration for technological synergy, while at the same time complying with restrictions on both height and premise.
Beijing Jinjia Plaza was completed in 2019 and was put into operation in the same year. It maximizes its economic value and achieves a win-win solution for the city, the client and the design. With a total asset of 6 trillion RMB owned by its tenants, it has the highest rent among financial office buildings in the Financial Street. Beijing Jinjia Plaza has become a new benchmark for financial office buildings in Beijing. Beijing Jinjia Plaza has a total area of 80,446 square meters, with 52,402 square meters above ground and 28,044 square meters underground. This 60-meter-tall,13-story building is located on a site bounded by E9 project of Financial Street on the east, Financial Street on the west, Wangfucang Hutong on the north and Huajia Hutong on the south. Its program consists of business offices and supporting facilities that mostly serve high-end financial clients.
Beijing Jinjia Plaza located in the Financial Street which surrounded by established business office buildings. As a response, the project design systematically considers the spatial relationship between the building and its context, urban interface, public space, building volume and sightline alignment, while fully satisfying the plot ratio and building height restriction. The main considerations of the design are respect for the urban environment, integration of the building with its urban environment in both volume and composition, and consistency of architectural characters with those in its context.
The design includes a two-story outdoor colonnade on the side close to the street—inspired by the "surround viewing balcony (Fu Jie Zhou Za)" in traditional Chinese architecture—to create an inviting "block-style" spatial feeling. The space of the building site is thus "shared" with the city, providing a spatially progressive urban interface for multiple uses, creating a comfortable urban space where public and business activities can coexist, serving the city by integrating the building into the city.
The façade design of Beijing Jinjia Plaza follows the principle of feature coherence, which confirming to the ideology of cultural revival. Though fully considering the urban feature of the Financial Street, the design reinterprets the classical facades principle to modern character in its use of color and materials.
By combining the symmetrical form of traditional Chinese architecture, the design divides the façade by creating a rhythmic façade from south to north, establishing contrast between the positive and negative space. Drawing on the proportional relationship of √2 from Chinese Tang and Song architectures, the design incorporates the aesthetic composition and proportion of traditional architecture, seeking to relate the vertical and horizontal divisions of the facade.
Chinese traditional architecture focuses on respect and etiquette: the bays are categorized into central bays, subcentral bays and tip bays; the doors emphasize symmetry and distinction of superiority and inferiority; and in an odd number of spans, the middle span has a wider span than the side spans and is used as the main entrance. Drawing on the practice of "surround viewing balcony" in traditional Chinese Tang and Song architecture, Beijing Jinjia Plaza’s design creates a traditional scale of colonnade through the vertical division of space.
Based on the practice of central bay in traditional Chinese architecture, the building adopts a symmetrical layout from north to south to emphasize the sense of solemnity of the central main entrance. The entrance lobby runs through the east-west span and raises two-story high. Combined with the outdoor colonnade, it provides a public space for sharing, communication and recreation. The design creates a classic, elegant, and humble environment informed by both traditional Chinese culture and international elements, achieving harmonious coherence both inside and outside the building.
The design for the standard office floors pays special attention to spatial scale and indoor comfort. The building has a flexible office layout and an excellent landscape view, permitting both private and public uses. In addition, the passenger elevators feature a precise design and strict control for the waiting time; and the bathroom and pantry are fully equipped. The human-centered design improves the quality of this building from every detail.
The architectural design of Beijing Jinjia Plaza takes full consideration of user experience by meeting the demand for indoor comfort through applying strict controls on the shading methods for each orientation of the building. The design applies double curtain walls in the east and west facades of the building, applying ecological, green low-carbon, and energy-saving technologies to the facade design, after the comprehensive analysis of economic efficiency. This design improves the comfort of the indoor environment and saves construction and operation costs. In addition, the façade design adopts the unit curtain wall, which is easy to install, thus improving the construction accuracy and realizing a high economic efficiency.
The design ingeniously combines the stone curtain wall system with the respiration double-skin facades, and uses the stone curtain wall cavity system to place smoke exhaust ducts. This in turn saves space in the core of the building and improves the efficiency of the indoor office space, achieving a balance between form and function. The inside of the stone curtain wall pilasters can be partly opened for smoke exhaust and ventilation, replacing the traditional smoke exhaust shaft.
The project adopts a design management method of full refinement control to ensure quality. The materials and colors of stone, glass and metal plates are determined through the construction of sample walls; clean joints are achieved through detailed processing of "cross-shaped" and "asterisk-shaped" stone joints; and the floodlighting design of the curtain wall design is fully considered to achieve the best night lighting effect without compromising the daytime effect.
After completion, the daily operation and maintenance of Beijing Jinjia Plaza are well controlled, and its flow and uses are efficient. Its flexible floor layout allows the space to be divided or combined to adapt for different needs. The project ensures a high degree of design completion through the coordination and dynamic full control of project design, construction cooperation, and operation upon completion, which enables timely response as needs change. Through this system, it is possible to respond more precisely and efficiently to the interrelationship between multiple systems, thus achieving a high degree of project completion.
