Located on an irregularly shaped plot with views of the Jiaoman River and Phoenix Lake, the 80,762-square-meter building will be composed of a series of stacked geometric blocks in order to create varied silhouettes and capitalize on surrounding views.
While the project is situated in a prime location with fantastic views of surrounding lake and river, the irregular-shaped plot and proximity to metro tracks pose challenges to the design, noted the architects. The upper portion of the building rotates by 45 degrees to maximize views and the gross floor area while meeting local setback requirements and fire codes.
Horizontal fins on the simple façade will provide sun-shading to moderate the internal environment of the building.
