Zaha Hadid Architects have completed the world’s tallest atrium, Beijing’s Leeza SOHO. Located in the Chinese capital’s southwestern region, the building sits on Lize Road, anchoring Fengtai business district — the sprawling financial and transporting hub located between the city center and brand new Beijing Daxing International Airport, also designed by Hadid’s team of architects.

The 45-story building remains a brand new office space for small and medium-sized businesses and received LEED Gold certification by the US Green Building Council. The building’s two halves feature a unique rotating “pas de deux” construction, both of which are connected via skybridges across a variety of floors. This allows for a luxurious panoramic view of the city while still maintaining its sculpture-like design quality. Among these sustainable features include double-insulated glass curtain walls systems that allow for efficient environmental control for each floor, highly-efficient filters that remove air particulates via the air-handling system, external water-collection fixtures, an insulating green roof that harvests solar energy, and more.

You can take a look Leeza SOHO via the gallery above.
