Aedas recently won a competition to design Zhuhai Hengqin International Hi-tech Innovation Park, which is located at Hengqin, one of the newly announced Free Trade Zones in China.
The project aims to become a nurturing ground for the hi-tech industry and will consist of office spaces for business incubators, enterprise accelerators, research and development as well as headquarters, supported by a one-stop service centre, public technology platforms, conference and training centres, technology exhibition and experience centres. Retail and serviced apartments will also be incorporated into the development to facilitate a work-live community.
Aedas’ winning design drew inspiration from the scenic beauty of Hengqin’s mountains and sea.
The office towers reflect the outline of the mountains and seashore with curved edges, while the layout is carefully planned to include a central park with a sunken plaza and water features. The design creates an urban paradise for startup and business entrepreneurs.
