The Head Office’s ceremonial main entrance is located at the corner of Xidan Street and Changanjie. It is topped by a reception room with a peaked skylight overlooking both the ancient and the modern city.
 

 

The PEI design features elegant Roman travertine which is used extensively inside and out. Its sculptural massing and fine detailing celebrates the stone’s endless architectural potential.
