Manufacture de Tabac

Tobacco factory

Office & Industry

Construction of two new buildings and restoration of an existing building.

The Zhonghua Tobacco Factory, which manufactures the Chinese luxury Panda cigarettes, is located in the Yangpu District near the Huangpu River in Shanghai. The urban, architectural and landscape redevelopment of the 106,500 m² site seeks to integrate large industrial buildings within a highly urbanized area.
The new buildings fit perfectly into their environment. The street facade is composed of reflective stainless steel panels that reflect the new park open onto the neighbourhood whilst the terra cotta elevations and roofs recall adjacent buildings. They provide good thermal insulation and reduce energy consumption.
