Located in Xi’an’s Central Business District, Times Centre is an SOM designed Grade-A commercial tower of 230 m tall with 5 levels of retail podium. The interior fit-out concept took its design cue from the architecture of the Tower by morphing its bold yet simple linearity into the interior atmosphere. All publicly accessible interior spaces are designed in a minimalist, reflective and abstract interior atmosphere. In synchrony with the exterior façade, the interior is rational and aligned with the exterior, unifying the architectural language of the tower design, and creating an awe-inspiring interior experience for visitors and users. Stripped of all design formalism, the interior space is meant to inspire and draw introspection.
