The language of architecture form make a dialogue with the culture of enterprise headquarters, we try to find out the relationship between the core values of the enterprise and the design of the architecture. A public landscape channel was design in the site with a modest stance.

Taking the tropical climate into consideration, we decide to breakthrough the coverage requirements, and try to create land spaces of public communication which is covered by shade. Taking advantage of terrains, we try to reduce the soil excavation, so as to support the low-carbon building.

A stretched polyline-shaped thick plate building is designed, in order to adapt to the future function exchanging and respond to the relationship between building and contour and the harmony of building scale and the interlocution with distant sea.

The continuous space increase the opportunities of staff communication. A design of shading system is an tropical architecture form inspired by the skin texture of tropical fruit.
