Sutherland Hussey's Tongzhou Tower
Tongzhou Tower is latest in a string of Chinese wins for Scottish practice
Sutherland Hussey has won a competition to design the third tallest building in Beijing.
The Edinburgh practice will be a design consultant on the 288m-high Tongzhou Tower, working with Chinese architects Pansolution and Y Design, based in Beijing and Hong Kong respectively.
The firm beat Woods Bagot and German firm von Gerkan Marg & Partners (GMP) to scoop the Tongzhou Tower job.
“It’s quite something to win against them,” said director Colin Harris. “GMP is one of the biggest practices working in China and they and SOM tend to hoover up all the high-profile commercial work.”
The mixed-use tower will contain residential, retail, offices, a hotel and a sky garden with views across the city. It is due to be completed in 2013.
