Vanke Hengda HQ
Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China
This project is a new 166,300 SM mixed- use Shenzhen HQ Base area for Hengda Group, one of the leading entrepreneurs in China. The concept was to create a series of horizontal vertical courtyards that create an engaging sense of open space which permeates the whole complex that also speaks to the vision of Hengda Group. The building mass was created as twin towers, framing the view towards the sea, as the same time holding a moving part as the Chairman’s master office, which itself can move up and down as a giant lift that creates a non- hierarchical working status that speaks to the behavior and organization of companies of the future expressed at an urban scale.
