International Living in Beijing’s Second Embassy District

Embassy House
Beijing, China

“Diplomats are the primary inhabitants of the Embassy House, a 32-story luxury apartment high-rise located in Beijing's Second Embassy District. Designed by the Hong Kong office of HOK, the building is modeled on the premise of a five-star hotel.”

Building Design + Construction

Located in the prestigious Second Embassy District of Beijing, this condominium tower meets the needs of the primarily expatriate residential market.

HOK designed the exterior of the gently curved residential tower to complete a composition with the adjacent office building. The design offers choices to current occupants while creating flexibility for future market needs.

Lighting plays a key role in the floor plans, which provide each resident with southern, eastern or western exposures. The design eliminates exclusively northern exposures for any apartments and minimizes the impact of shadows on the office and residential buildings to the north.
