Galaxy SOHO’s Workers and Shoppers Marvel at Mondéco

One of Beijing’s latest luxury shopping centres has used a decorative solution from Flowcrete to create floors that match the development’s highly stylised image.

Galaxy SOHO is a high-end commercial development in Beijing that exemplifies how terrazzo flooring can be utilised to create a striking, modern and eye catching aesthetic.

The prominent office and retail complex is situated next to Beijing’s East 2nd Ring Road and covers a 50,000 square metre site with graceful and fluid architectural lines. The facility not only boasts incredible visual appeal but also champions environmental and green building goals.

To create a dynamic and luxurious interior environment the world renowned architect Zaha Hadid chose the global resin flooring specialist Flowcrete’s seamless epoxy terrazzo system Mondéco Crystal. 9,000 square metres of the solution was applied within the Galaxy SOHO development in a bespoke design of contrasting light and dark bands.

From the outside the flowing bands of white aluminium and glass encasing the interior give the complex an incredible, eye-catching presence. Within the building this image is continued with a block of white floor that matches the walls and ceilings. A complimentary grey area borders the bright white centre with a visually striking black stripe separating the two colours.

Clear crystal and glass aggregates are incorporated within the resin make up of Mondéco Crystal so that the finish shimmers and sparkles. The hard-wearing nature of the system means that it can retain this attractive appearance in the face of continuous and heavy foot traffic.

Green building practices were also an important aspect of this development, as the architects designed and planned the project to meet LEED certification. Mondéco Crystal added to the site’s green credentials, as many of the decorative aggregates are reclaimed from waste streams to minimise the amount of material taken to landfills and its long life span avoids the environmental harm incurred during a flooring refurbishment.
