The traditional Chinese totem of bamboo will be used throughout this regeneration project in China 

Designed by Aedas, Gmond International Building is a representative regeneration project in the old town in Shenzhen, China. The project will house the headquarters for Tellus-Gmond, Grade 5A lettable office spaces and a jewellery trading centre. The well-facilitated transport hub nearby will contribute enormous circulation and footfall to the complex and will also generate excellent development potential.

The architectural form of this 200m super high-rise is referenced to the traditional Chinese totem of bamboo which symbolises prosperity and moral integrity. The ascending podium massing recaptures a growing bamboo, featuring exterior landscaped staircases, public platforms, eco-friendly rooftop gardens and an art centre that will also serve as a jewellery exhibition venue. The podium façade expresses as large bamboo leaves to enclose the commercial component forming an interesting duet with the blooming tower.
