Dutch firm UNStudio has completed a mixed-use development in the Chinese city of Hangzhou that accommodates a hotel, offices, apartments and retail spaces in a pair of sinuous towers connected by a podium and landscaped plaza. Raffles City Hangzhou was designed by UNStudio for real estate company CapitaLand and is described by the studio as "a sustainable urban hub for living, working and leisure" located in the city's Qianjiang New Town area. The enormous development forms a prominent landmark in Hangzhou's new CBD, with a total area of almost 400,000 square metres spread across the two 250-metre towers, the podium building and the surrounding plaza. The project is the largest single building completed by the firm headed by architect Ben van Berkel, which opened an office in nearby Shanghai in 2009 to oversee its design and construction.
