Huawei Qingdao Flagship Store
On December 31, 2021, Huawei Qingdao Flagship Store was officially opened. It is located in China Resources MixC City, Qingdao and is for the display and sale of Huawei mobile phones and electric cars.
The Inhabit Shanghai team provided full scope façade design consultancy service. The main façade systems include of a jumbo-sized glass wall of 11m tall and stone claddings. The glass wall provides a high transparency and perfectly combines the beauty of the material and workmanship. Each piece of the glass is 11 meters high and 3 meters wide, with curved glass panes at the corners.
“The glass is purely supported by itself without any vertical members. As Qingdao is located in a Typhoon area, this was a great challenge to our design team. The fixing at bottom of the glass wall is designed as a moment connection to reduce the deflection, while the top connection allows the glass panel to rotate. Each glass panel is made up of 7 pieces of low-iron glass, with 5x12mm laminated glass for the outer pane and 2x12mm laminated glass for inner pane.”
