Housing the headquarters of China Huaneng Group, the Huaneng Tower in Beijing is 130,000 square meter eleven storey office building designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with ALT working as the facade consultant. A LEED Gold-certified project, one of its notable features is its terracotta wall at the base of the building inspired by the Forbidden City dominant red and yellow colors, which then generates a sophisticated visual and tactile interest where people can come up close and touch the wall.
