This upcoming project comprises three interconnected office buildings in Zhengzhou—the provincial capital of Henan Province and a major transportation hub in central China.
The 21,708-square-metre site is an elongated plot with close proximity to residential blocks in the south. The design scheme delivers a straightforward solution by laying three office blocks along a narrow site, and angling the buildings to maximise the distance from the residences.
The building’s form is inspired by the famed Yellow River. The 45-degree-angled layout provides an outlook that resembles the winding course of the river. Such orientation gives a permeable frontage for better ventilation and more open space on the ground level. The elongated façade also allows 95 per cent of the buildings’ tenants facing north to have an extensive view of the Zhenghong Central Park.
The blocks are connected by shared facilities and rooftop terraces to deliver three-dimensional vertical green urban spaces. Flexible floor plans cater to the client, government and corporate tenants.
Strategically located near Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport with multiple public transport options, the project enjoys excellent connections with a design that enhances accessibility.
