John Puttick, partner and lead architect at Make’s Beijing studio, said, “The concept behind the design is to create a refined, streamlined building that enhances the Chengdu skyline and minimises environmental impact in an intelligent way.

‘The building has been finely crafted to the requirements of its occupants and to improve the public realm for the city. At Make, we approach each project with a priority always given to the environment and local communities.’
