Adjoining Qiongzhou Strait, Haikou Jiangdong New Zone plays an important role as a pioneer to further develop the Hainan Free Trade Zone.
Aedas Global Design Principal Kevin Wang, led the team to win the competition of SHCCIG (Hainan) International Industrial Headquarters, creating the first name card that facilitates further development of the area. Located in the western part of Jiangdong New Zone, the L-shaped complexes are comprised of four plots.
The two blocks on the west are commercial offices, while the other two blocks on the east are residential area. The blocks consist of headquarters buildings and staff residential apartment, complementing with supporting facilities of conference centre, staff training centre and event spaces that enhance interaction and communication.
Integrating Haikou’s natural resources and green energy targets of the Group, the design concentrates on industrial, technology and environmentally-friendly features to achieve the highest level of the Green Building Label. Double-layered louver façade is adopted to optimise the light concentration and maximise the energy efficiency.
The natural ventilation system is attached on the façade, creating an aesthetic and functional architectural form. A multi-layered public space is created utilising the elevation difference and half-sunken ground floor.
The interconnection increases penetration of light into the basement and provides a scenic landscape view to the headquarters. Sharing the communal area, the integration of office and residential building form an urban living room in Haikou. Source by Aedas.
