Conceptual Design through CDs
This project is located in the Qingdao economic and technological zone. Positioned in the center of the future Huangdao central business district, the site has a great location, magnificent views and is close to convenient transportation.
The folded massing of the podium aligns itself with the site geometry. The whole composition of the building massing is distinct and coordinates with the rest of the CBD masterplan. It embraces a public entrance plaza at the street level and with its unique massing, it will become a significant landmark for the new Huangdao urban fabric.
The facade of the building has six different curtain wall systems which clearly define the building geometry. The vertical folding tower crosses with the podium to provide a 14-story atrium. A series of indoor bridges connect the core and the office space to the south through the atrium. A clubhouse for sports and relaxation is programmed on the top level of the tower. The crossing of the podium and tower creates a outdoor plaza on the south, by connecting with the urban green belt, they provide a continuous and open space for the public.
