The Group stays committed to the mission of "Building for a Better Life". We actively support urban development and operation, participate in various renewal projects, protect urban relics, and at the same time engage in community reconstruction projects, promoting vitality and prosperity.
The Roof, Shanghai - Vitalising the Urban
The Roof is the first work by French architect Jean Nouvel in China, located in the Xintiandi commercial area in the central district of Shanghai. The project cleverly weaves the cultural elements of its surroundings into its unique design and incorporates greeneries into the city, creating a spatial model for the future of the city, where people and nature can flourish and coexist in harmony.
The project is designed to reflect the 'alley way' culture of Shanghai's backstreets in an abstract manner, creating an ecological office space with territoriality. The landscape and architecture here blur the traditional boundaries of disciplines and are a unique reflection of culture, climate, environment and commercial architecture.
Huai'an CIFI Plaza - Protection of urban historical heritage
Huai'an CIFI Plaza Demonstration Park is a 15,000 sq.m. park located in Huai'an, Jiangsu Province, which was originally a farmland site and later developed into a park. The surrounding area is mostly residential communities, manufacturing, ancillary services and schools, hence the park is designed as a gathering place for leisure, consumption, social gathering and entertainment for factory workers, teachers and students, families and office workers. The landscape design of the park adopts an abstract puzzle shape to connect the city and nature, creating an integrated natural-social park within the city.
Shijiazhuang Wise Mansion - Construction of affordable housing
To accommodate the government's promotion on the construction of affordable housing to increase its supply, CIFI devotes to the construction of affordable housing, one example being the Wise Mansion project in Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province. The project is an 11-storey high-rise flat with GFA of approximately 2,400 sq.m. and a total of 36 units. The housing is fully decorated and designed according to 75% energy saving standards, and has passed the inspection of the government affordable housing centre and earned high recognition. The project was awarded Shijiazhuang Five Star Site and Hebei Safe and Civilised Site in 2019 and 2020, respectively.
