China Life Office Tower
Shenzhen, Guangdong, China
Paul Dingman

The lobby of the new, 35-story China Life Office Tower is a special public space which connects the building and the public plaza at street level. The space has a unique sense of place while still feeling like an extension of the building. Large, sculptural light structures outline the ceiling and showcase stairs while washes of light highlight delicate materials and finishes for an easy balance.
