TFP Farrells have won an international design competition for Winland in Xiamen, China 

TFP Farrells have won an international design competition, organised by Winland Group, for the Xiamen Cross Strait Financial Centre in an emerging CBD district in Xiamen, China. Under the 12th Five-Year Plan, this proposal will form an integral part of a new financial centre. From its position on the eastern coast of Xiamen Island the development will offer panoramic views of Taiwan and Kinmen Island.

The design concept illustrates the importance of Xiamen as a gateway between China and Taiwan. TFP Farrells Director Stefan Krummeck said: “Our design provides dramatic visual impact, ensuring the breathtaking view of the coast of China is maximised.”

This ambitious scheme for Winland Group comprises four super high-rise towers: office buildings, a serviced apartment tower, a 5-star hotel and retail space with a total GFA of 500,000 sq m. The iconic gateway towers form the centrepiece of the ensemble. The ground level connects to Huandao Road and offers direct access to a future metro entrance.

As the pioneer project of an emerging financial district, the gateway towers symbolise the significance of openness and cooperation. The floating hotel at the top creates the ‘GATE’, a form that offers dual advantages of height and landscape value as well as an architecturally striking new landmark befitting up-and-coming Xiamen.

The building features high speed elevators which will whisk guests to the spacious sky lobby at the 150m level. Stunning 360-degree views from the sky lobby, rooftop viewing deck and infinity pool will offer guests unprecedented vistas of Kinmen Island and city of Xiamen. The development will serve as an urban beacon to surrounding areas and reflects the contemporary side of Xiamen City.
