Yutong Group Headquarters
The Nanjing Jiulonghu Headquarters Park covers 69,500m2 in Nanjing, China and represents a successful mix of business and leisure functions in a green setting at the lake. The site is organized into 3 zones. Each zone provides a different type of office, with other facilities, and comes up with individual characteristics. The architecture of each zone reflects the characteristics of the position on the site. Zone A: The Landmark Office Tower is located in the northwest of the site, facing Nanjing City. They give the site a clear and modern image. The landmark office towers offer grade A offices with a view on the city as well as a view of the lake. Zone B: The Economy Office Towers are located in the west of the site. They offer flexible office space for different kind of usages to an affordable rent. They have a view on the Central Park and the lake. Zone C: The Lakeside offices are “Villa” offices, located inside the lakeside park, offering a green surrounding and a 360o view. A green roof rounds these buildings up, the perfect office space for companies who want to offer their employees the best environment.
Nanjing Jiulonghu Headquarters Park offers a variety of spaces and functions. 3 different office areas with a total area of 243,103m² provide spaces for different kinds of office users. A large variety of public functions make Nanjing Jiulonghu Headquarters Park more than just an office park: A community place is provided, with attractive outdoor areas and facilities, entertainment and commercial functions and even service apartments invite users to spend their time here. A mix of urban and natural settings create a new PLACE, a unique and attractive environment for work and life.
Kunshan Science and Technology Park
Jining Science and Technology Museum is located in a new master plan area for Jining and borders a man-made lake. The museum site spreads across four buildings, a science and technology museum, cinema, library, and business center. All four buildings are visually connected in a circular formation, allowing each structure to blend together seamlessly and to create a new landmark for the area. The project’s primary design goals were to create spaces that maximize the usability for users’ while taking advantage of the scenic views of the surrounding river. The layout of each building sharing an underground first floor, granting easy access to each of the buildings, along with the transparent facades that provides an uninterrupted panoramic view of the lake achieves these design goals.Numerous energy-saving measures were taken to ensure that the Science and Technology Center is a representation of today’s innovation and technology. Some of the measures included insulating all the exterior walls and using double-glazed, insulated profiles for the exterior doors and windows.Along with the energy-saving goals, the buildings were specifically designed to create a functional interconnection between indoor and outdoor use, which efficiently connects them with the neighboring communities and creates a new and special relationship with the various surrounding urban realities. The fixed curtain walls are designed for the indoor exhibition spaces that require no natural light; the small windows scattered about the system are added to bring more daylight into the lightwell and improve ventilation. In contrast, the walls directly facing the artificial central lake are all made operable and glazed as a way to create an outdoor space where people can walk around, take a rest and make social contact. Despite the fact that the lights are added onto the fixed curtain walls, they are laid out in line with the window openings – in terms of position and density, taking on a random, natural starry pattern.
The project site is located in a newly developed research and development area in Jinling district in Nanjing, surrounded by universities and with a view to the new wetland landscape park. The high desity development includes space for the client’s headquarters, rentable office space, and a hotel with additional facilities focusing on weddings, conferences, meetings and exhibitions. For better circulation three entrances separate the hotel from the office traffic. The architectural design is an ensemble of two towers with different heights, connected by one podium with a roof garden. The U-shaped podium with a stone cladded facade faces a creek across the street and functions as a representative hotel entrance. The polygonal shape of the towers has been optimized to provide the best views from the hotel and the headquarters towards the surroundings. The dynamic building design is a striking landmark alongside Raoyue Highway and will define the image of district for years to come.
Zibo Culture Center
The Kunshan Science & Technology Office Park is the flagship building for the whole science park. Being the first to be developed on the site, it set a high standard to reflect a modern and industrial approach to design. Since the building is visible from the public roads, represents the whole park, and greets everybody entering the site from the main entrance, the design language had to be highly representative, strict, and follow modern design standards. The new building is a total of six floors above ground and one floor underground. Throughout, the architecture is simple and clear, abandoning any unnecessary, playful, or decorative elements. The curtain wall system features a collage of three types of stones in varying shades of gray, transparent/textured glass panels and operable glass windows, delivering a remarkably uniform visual effect. Due to the permeability of stones and varied reflective finishes of the glass panels, the facades take on a diversity of appearances in different weather conditions.The bright, spacious atrium in contrast with the heavy monolithic building wings provokes a significant and remarkable first impression. By utilizing standard construction methods and locally available materials, the construction costs did not exceed the average for this building type and achieved a high-grade of energy efficiency. This project was one of the first projects in China to be certified and issued an LEC Low Energy Certificate.
China Ethene Valley-Guangming Town
A very narrow, about a one-thousand-meter-long, strip of land by a river and a public green space divides the project into three irregular-shaped parts. To create a more interesting skyline and to reduce the limitation of the project’s width and height, the architect used various solutions. Each building has two similar segments with height differences, which is enhanced by the use of different materials. The surface of the main building is predominantly covered with stone and partly with aluminium alloy grids that make the façade more diversified while hiding the air conditioners and other facilities.
The project’s functions are for R&D offices, headquarters, commercial spaces, and apartments. Each function’s positioning and ratio are based on research done on the surrounding environment and a comprehensive understanding of the urban context. The project has convenient access to the new city centre of a neighbouring university town, which is under construction, a big residential area on the north side, and a 25-metre-wide green belt on the south side.
Everbright Bank Headquarters
Located in the heart of New Gusu CBD, the Gusu Software Park is, at the very start, positioned as an integral part of urban spaces rather than an industrial park. The project is part of logon’s innovative attempt to transform an enclosed industrial site into one open to the surroundings prior to the domestic trends. The development boasts main functions such as office, hotel and R&D center, as well as an exhibition center, public spaces and high-end residences. The 101,425-square-meter master plan is comprised of three parts: the riverfront landscapes, the urban area facing the expressway, and the central high street that blends both features. The vehicle traffic is funneled into the underground space at the entrance of the park. The above ground space is designed specifically for pedestrians, with the central footpath and commercial leisure space fitting the entire park into the urban environment.
Shanghai G+ Glass Park Phase 2
The whole R&D Center, located in Jining city, Shandong province, not only aims to make the most out on development but it is also high-quality life oriented since it aims to meet the local needs in all levels. For instance, the Jining Economic & Technology Development Zone is thought for its inhabitants to stay as close as possible so it comprises five villa complexes and two independent supporting facility buildings, allowing its users to save time on transportation and to decrease CO2 emissions. Additionally, new commercial facilities stand at the main entrance in the east and the square in the north.
As for the master plan layout, it is divided into 5 clusters, each of them made of 22-meter deep “己” shaped buildings. Their footprint stretches from east to west and fully occupies the width of the site. This permits to keep a comfortable distance of 20 meters from north to south between the buildings. Thus all office spaces get natural lightning and air circulation. From iconic and enclosing facades to colorful and human-scale architecture, the project echoes the urban surrounding as well as it fulfills the users’ needs.
The project is comprised of two symmetrical towers set on two separate podiums. With a total height of 128m, the towers are the highest buildings in the area of Jining National High-tech Industrial Development Zone and serve as landmarks. The center is an office, hotel and retail development with restaurants, conference and training facilities. The two podiums run parallel to the street, but the towers are slightly tilted towards each other, creating an architectural dialogue. The slightly curved north and south facades and their tops allow a dynamic and vibrant perception of the towers. The towers feature the same façade structure, material, and design principle– as reflected in the horizontal solar shading system. The parapets are not only an extension of the towers but also shelter the rooftop gardens from direct sunlight. The prefabricated components help reduce construction cost and can be easily installed
Nantong Chuangyuan Science and Technology Park
Shanghai G+ Park (Phase 2) is part of Shanghai Glass Museum Project, located in Baoshan District, Shanghai. Since the successful launch of the museum, its popularity surpassed expectations, it increased the value of the property in the whole district and attracted new businesses and developments. The G+ Park in the northern edge of the museum site is the result of this socioeconomic prosperity of the area. The G+ Park consists of over thirty industrial buildings, partially still involved in glass industry. The G+ building is a part of a 3 building ensemble and rounds up the museum complex. Due to the affiliation with the museum. G+ Park enjoys a steady flow of pedestrian visitors, accessing the site through the museum plaza, while also accommodates underground parking lot, giving the museum and park visitors enough space for leisure and relaxation.
Gusu Tianan Yungu
This modern office building is set in a green park adjacent to a canal. The project stands out, because it has a generously small building footprint and a high green ratio. The site’s land use is actually industrial and the building does fulfill the requirements of an industrial building, but it has the standards of an office building. Sun shading louvers increase the indoor comfort and make the overall design more dynamic. The building shape is actually a result of the challenges posed by the subway running under the site; the elegantly curved building outline follows the red line given by the Shanghai Shentong Metro Group. The project is a great example for how site restrictions can lead to outstanding design.
Sunbow Financial Center
These three towers are composed of an exploded crystal, creating three elements differentiating in height. The vertical orientation of the architectural design gives the buildings a dynamic appearance – as if they are growing up into the sky. The project consists of three main elements: a podium for retail and service facilities covered by a large red roof, three high-rise towers hosting administration, bank and SOHO offices, and a public park enclosing the ensemble, The red rooftop the podium reinterprets the traditional roof in Chinese architecture. Inside, the towers host individual layouts customized for each function, including sky gardens and rooftop club terraces.The large red roof is designed as a folded metal sheet and will touch the ground at the Northern and Southern edge of the plot. There are smaller openings in the roof (supplying daylight to the buildings and public open spaces) as one big central opening which defines the open plaza.The three glazed towers are placed around the plaza and are parallel to its edges. They will penetrate through the roof and form the vertical sculptural arrangement which will act as a recognizable landmark.
This project creates a new CBD for a city. It is the first step of the “bridge” connecting the new district with the old district and is an urban secondary center for people to live in and work in.This parcel is divided into three areas which are the area of finance, hotel and high-end office, the area for shopping, finance and business office the area for the commercial nodes and the high-end residence. The area for finance, hotel, and a high-end office has an urban scale coordinating with the city.The 27-floor high-end business office building brings a strong vertical impact to the city. It belongs to the community and the city as well.It is south oriented and open to the main streets. The whole office building is surrounded by the architectural cluster with financial and business office functions.The other buildings are connected by their main entrances and open to the same square. This kind of provides a highlight attracting people in this parcel.
Home Inns Hotel Headquaters
The project is located in Jinqiao Export Processing Zone, Pudong District, Shanghai. The site sits in the heart of an industrial zone. The aim is to provide the talent on site with a quality working/living environment and in the meantime create a pleasant urban atmosphere. The park is divided into three sections: the headquarters cluster, the commercial high-rise cluster, and the workspace and R&D center cluster. As the highlight of the park, the headquarters cluster consists of large-scale office buildings surrounded by smaller office building clusters that are accessible to one another by landscaped pedestrian walkways. The facades of the podium at the main entrance make it feel like a clubhouse; the streamlined lower parts of the red awnings help attract pedestrians into the park. Public green spaces are distributed evenly between buildings. There is a central garden, plenty of pedestrian spaces, plazas and open spaces above the ground while vehicle traffic goes underground. All this constitutes a comfortable working environment for the talent.
The high-density project has a floor area ratio of 2.0 but a height limit of only 30 meters. And the client insists that most of the office buildings can only have 4-5 floors. The first two floors and retail floors of the office buildings are relatively regular in form to shape a stable base. The remaining floors are twisted to add open-air terraces and leisure spaces. This approach not only helps improve the quality of space by expanding spaces between buildings but also reflects the depth and flexibility of the side elevations of individual buildings and the whole streetscape.
The project, which is set next to the former Expo site and nearby the financial district of Lujiazui, takes full advantage of the location and upgrades the surrounding neighborhood by creating a public entrance plaza to the Expo administration area. Two modern office buildings with unobstructed views to Huangpu River, Luwan District, and Lujiazui frame the plaza. The architectural style is classic modern, simple, elegant and designed with great attention to detail. The facade material is natural stone and the aluminum-framed windows have integrated louvers for sun shading. The atrium is a representative space, welcoming visitors and employees alike. The generous public spaces, the roof gardens, and the high ceilings contribute to the project’s overall goal to create outstanding working places that increase the quality of everyday life in the city.
Liaogou River R&D Center
In an effort to drive further the growth of Home Inns, founded in 2002, plans to build a new headquarters in Wujiang, Suzhou. The complex is to host quality office spaces and an activity center with supporting facilities for more than 1,200 employees work and entertain themselves. It will also include an education and training center, conference and meeting spaces, as well as a 150-room high-end hotel. “Wherever you are, you’ll always feel at home” is not only the hotel group’s slogan but also a guiding principle in the design and master planning of the new headquarters. Functions are laid out in such a way to ensure smooth, efficient inter-departmental communication and in the meantime meet the needs of different users. The main building provides a superior working environment for staffers with the top floor accommodating high-end business club. The building is attached to the education and training center to its east, opposite the main road to its west hosting the budget hotel. Part of the second phase, the staff activity center is located in the south of the site. Another 30,000sqm office space will be built in the east at the third phase.
Yangqiao Business Center
The design process paid close attention to every detail; only state-of-the-art appliances are used in the outfitting of the interior, and luxurious and extravagant finishes are lavishly used on all the surfaces to create a sense of exclusiveness. The landscaped entrances ensure a smooth transition between the public sphere and the apartments located on the first floor, and the green areas and water features preserve inhabitants’ privacy. The four towers are arranged in such a way that all the residential units have a south-facing orientation, which gives the majority of future tenants a nearly 360-degree view. In an effort to break down the massive high-rise volumes, the towers, a residential development in the heart of the CBD, are made slightly curved with properly designed spaces in between, in heights ranging from 13 stories in the south of the site to 16 stories in the north. And the modern façades make the buildings differ from the traditional residences. A reference to the latest global residential ideas, the scheme aims at creating a comfortable living environment.
Situated in the new Qiantan Business District of Pudong, this modern residential compound provides luxurious international-styled apartments. The compound is equipped with a wide range of amenities including a family-friendly clubhouse for dining, meetings, and parties along with a gym with a swimming pool. A lush vegetated park with ponds and meadows form a dense and diverse landscape that surrounds the compound.
Unlike any other residential project, this project combines the western principle of perimeter block development with the eastern idea of north-south orientation to create an exciting new typology for a residential building.
Huaxin Taindi Jinqiao
In an effort to create a harmonious site where architecture and nature combine perfectly, Logon came up with this project that joins a series of R&D sites completed in Jining city, Shandong province. To begin with, alongside the Liaogou river is located the new building for the Research and Development Park, the first one developed on the site and thought to be the flagship of the whole area. The design optimizes the layout of the building, increases the lake’s facade, and creates diverse lake views. From the beginning our team was aware that focusing only on the water front, will create a backside of low spatial quality. Instead, we proposed a diverse urban design which creates high-quality public spaces connected to the water front as well as to the green landscape. Therefore, the site not only is destined to be a work space but also a green area for its inhabitants’ well being. On the one hand, the lake side works as both commercial and leisure façade; on the other hand, the landscape side works as an access for the offices and workshops.
