Archilier Architecture, as Design Architect, in collaboration with CCDI/Shenzhen, has won an International competition to design two office towers with a combined gross area of 120,000sm for Shenzhen Investment Holdings Co., Ltd. in Shenzhen’s newly-developing Qianhai District. The winning design exhibits a dynamic fluidity in the building façade through the use of articulated vertical piers on a softly-rounded volume whose footprint grows as the tower rises. The tower skin mitigates the strong tropical sun while creating a memorable silhouette on the Qianhai skyline. Stacked vertical atria on every third floor accentuate the building’s vertical thrust and provide a small landscaped retreat for the enjoyment of office workers – a nod to Shenzhen’s character as a coastal ‘garden city’. 2022 is the estimated completion date for the project.
