“The light is reflected through the patio and glass wall while entering the building, bringing people comfort and warmness. We hope people who work here can easily communicate and exchange with each other in this nice vibe.” Taking the site element into account, SBA intends to incorporate the existing building with on-site natural elements and introduce generous communal and event space to foster interactions not only between tenants but also the public and the building itself.

“Stefano Boeri Architetti (SBA) is trying to mitigate urban living problems by utilizing verticalisation. It is about how to use smart ways to increase people’s living experience when the space and resource are getting scarce. At the same time, we hope to make residents enjoy the precious natural landscapes in cities.” said SBA Chinese partner Dr. Yibo Xu.
