Rocco Design Architects Limited has been announced as the winner of an invited competition to design a grand office development on a 27,777 sq m plot of land in Shekou, Shenzhen. The development will create 80,000 sq m of commercial space in a complex that looks to ‘energise’ this area of the city.
The site is divided into two lots with each designated plot featuring three towers of differing heights to create a dynamic aesthetic. The boundaries of the building footprints will form the definition of the development edge.
At the core of this commercial development is a series of open-air communal spaces such as streets, courtyards and plazas. Renderings show mature trees and lush carpets of grass sandwiched between the tower blocks, brought to life with seating areas and wide stairways.
Rocco Design Architects Limited says of the winning concept: “The proposed development will ultimately generate a sustainable, livable and humane office and commercial precinct and energize this highly developing area of Shekou in the long run.”
