Award Entry

Swire’s landmark by Arquitectonica designed as 'the quintessential mixed-use development ' 

Tai Koo Hui is a landmark mixed-use development in Tianhe District, Guangzhou, China. The site is situated on a prime location and measures approximately 48,954 sq m.

The project will be connected by subterranean pedestrian tunnels to the Metro 3 underground train line station located on Tianhe Road. The site is organised with the 3 towers and the Cultural Center located at each corner of the site. The retail sits at the centre forming the kernel of the development tying all the components together naturally. The 3 towers are placed at angles orientating themselves to allow clear views, maximise open space and natural light into the heart of the site.

The office towers have shared drop offs with the retail podium, whilst the hotel and cultural centre have dedicated drop offs. The retail podium is accessed via four entrances at the east, south and west via customised glazed entrances and to the north by a shared covered drop off. The covered drop off provides convenient access to the hotel ballroom and lobby, the Cultural Center and the basement car parking.

The development involves a state-of-the-art integrated project of approximately 450,000sqm of gross floor area. The program includes: a 4-storey retail centre (120,000 sq m); a 40-storey storey Grade ‘A’ office tower (100,000 sq m); a 28-storey Grade ‘A’ office tower (60,000 sq m); a 5-star, 28-storey, 286-key Mandarin Oriental Hotel and serviced apartments (65,000 sq m); a cultural centre (60,000 sq m); associated ancillary facilities for car parking (780 cars); loading and unloading docks (42 nos.); mechanical / electrical plant & equipment and related management and service facilities.
