As the world’s largest mobile phone provider, China Mobile is seeking for a universally valid company representation. A part of china Mobiles company philosophy is the client company relationship, which is also reflected in the building configuration design by Synarchitects . The Pingdinshan China Mobile Building combines the company’s global image with local context and meaning, custom tailored for the location. The industrial and historical background of Pingdinshan is interlaced into the building and finds its representation in one of the two volumes standing for past, history and local tradition. More images and architects’ description after the break.
The second volume is representing the outlook into the future, the development of china Mobile and the city of Pingdinshan. The timeless façade of the ensemble will outlast fashion and will not lose its elegance. The building inner organization and its state of the art office surrounding provide an efficient and productive environment.
Besides the office and company environment landscape and leisure features were regarded as important components. They tie up the buildings with the urban context and the citizens of Pingdinshan. Activated floor slaps, heat exchangers and other technologies common in modern buildings help saving operation costs and make the building sustainable.
