Qianhai Mixed-use Development Hong Kong

Info

The vision for this site, nestled in the heart of the financial canyon district, is an oasis with lush greenery and waterfalls – a welcome sanctuary.

With the overhanging canyon providing shade from direct sun exposure and cool gentle breezes funneling through the covered canyon, the micro-climate at the piazza provides a welcome relieve from the harsh summer heat. Falling water features accentuates the cooling effect of the breezes. Sunlight streaking through sparkles as it hits the falling water, breaking up into rainbows of colors and dances to the sound of the falling water. As the sun moves across the sky throughout the day, the streak of sunlight moves across the piazza like follow spots in a theatrical display. Overhead, strategically placed bridges linking the north and south retail malls act like hanging gardens embracing the piazza on its east and west ends while still allowing breezes to funnel through.

The office towers soars above the canyon with sinuous contours of glass and metal shimmering in the sunlight, ever changing as the sun moves across the sky throughout the day. In the evening, the towers stands as a glittering beacon in the skyline. Each tower is expressed as two slimmer components soaring sinuously upwards, reaching up and opening at the top like a pair of hands to capture the sun and the rain and funneling it down the vegetated sky lobbies that ties the two components together, all the way to the waterfalls that graces the canyon below.
