2 / 6 diagram of the design steps 設計步驟示意圖

This project is located in an area on the East 4th ring of Beijing that is still relatively under-developed but is becoming more and more attractive for commercial and office activities due to its proximity to the CBD. This conceptual masterplan provides the general massing guidelines and spatial organization for a future business centre.

3 / 6 project layers 項目層級

The design consists of ten 80m towers and three lower buildings on top of a linear podium that comprehends parking, small shops and semi-private courtyards mainly for the employees, while the garden and the terraces would offer open-air public space for the whole neighbourhood.

Given the elevated density of potential users, we also considered the possibility of creating special levels in the towers that could host public activities and located them at different heights in order to provide an interesting variety of views.

While the architecture of the towers is quite simple and uniform to provide a sense of calm unity that retreats from the iconic rush of many adjacent buildings, most of the spatial articulation happens on the ground level.

The parking that runs like a spine across the whole site is split on two semi-levels to minimize excavation and create platforms at different elevations that work as an artificial topography to better organize the access flows and create more diverse conditions for the public space. A series of ramps, with a mix of soft and hard pavements, connects the buildings with the landscape, establishing a continuous circulation system that can easily adapt to a multiplicity of activities.
