The second NIO House automotive showroom designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects opened recently in Hangzhou, China overlooking the West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site that is one of the most beautiful sights in the country. As with the architectural firm’s first NIO House, which opened in Shanghai in February, NIO House West Lake is a design-centric take on the traditional car showroom for innovative electric car company NIO. A global start-up, NIO designs and develops high-performance electric and autonomous vehicles, while taking an unconventional view of the industry and redefining what premium service means for a car company.
