This project conveys the spirit of the Zhangjiang developing neighborhood whose motto is: “an innovative district, a charming district”.
The façades and the roof are designed in compliance with the climatic features of the region where the buildings are located, taking into account fundamental parameters such as light, orientation as well as energy consumption.
The cover, which is a large roof, corresponds to open-air meeting areas. The central volume connects the five buildings, all of which have different uses.
The transparent ground floors, with open spaces, enable the visitors to better understand the position of entrances and exits while clearing views.
This project represents a continuous and complementary addition to the “Zhangjiang Engineering Park” center, which is already a built area.
On the southern part, it opens on the Zhongke street with a “piazza” at the entrance. On the western side, the buildings open their doors towards the river bank and the surrounding landscape.
