Heller Manus Architects wins 2 China contracts

Heller Manus Architects of San Francisco has been awarded the contract to design a new headquarters complex for the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATRC) in Tianjin, China. With several offices throughout China, this new building complex will serve as the main headquarters for the CATRC.

Comparable to the United States’ National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the CATRC is an automotive technology research institute that functions as a liaison between China’s government and the automotive industry.

The CATRC headquarters complex will include a high-tech office building with underground parking, conference center, library, hotel, restaurant and parking garage. The design will focus on showcasing the features of a modern, state-level research institute, creating a building plan dedicated to advanced technology, green building methods, and functional usage space while bridging the design gap between tradition and modernity, according to the architects.

Heller Manus has also been tapped to design the International Fashion Center in Guangzhou with headquarters for Canudilo, one of the leading high-end men’s clothing and accessories and luxury brand retailers in China. The International Fashion Center and Canudilo headquarters will include office and retail space, a gallery for fashion exhibitions, roof garden, and below-grade parking. The International Fashion Center will pursue an environmentally sustainable design with energy-saving and green building methods.
