Cenke Tower / HENN

Cenke Tower / HENN

Berlin-based Henn has been chosen as the winner of the architectural competition to design the 280-meter Cenke Tower in Taiyuan. Located on a north-south axis, the mixed-use tower will include office, hotel, and retail space.

The vertically accented facades of the longer sides will be constructed from glass with different transparency levels and opaque aluminum elements. As the building rises in height, the shape reduces in size, responding to the program while controlling the amount of direct sunlight that reaches the interior of the tower. The goal is to provide maximum interior daylight while allowing hotel guests to enjoy panoramas of the city.

A lush sunken courtyard and entrance area located on the western side of the building will complete the lively structure.
