Start of construction for Haikou Tower South

Hainan, China – October 2016: Construction has started on Haikou Tower South, which lies in the new business quarter of the South China city of Haikou and is due to be completed by 2020.

Baubeginn Haikou Tower South

At 428 m high, it is the tallest building on the island and marks the heart of the new central business district. The tower, along with green shapes and water, frames an expansive plaza alongside the Eastern Guo Xing Road, which is the main east-west axis of the city.

The form and structure of the tower are determined by the room schedule and an efficient loadbearing structure. Eight inclined mega-columns along the perimeter rotate around the central core and converge with one another at acute angles. Diagonal struts carry wind loads and torsional forces, forming rhomboid shapes in the facade.

The bottom two-thirds of the tower are planned for office use and the pinnacle will house a hotel. The office areas have long-span ceiling slabs and column-free internal spaces. Above the three-storey hotel lobby on the 71st floor, hotel rooms and a full height atrium extend from the 76th to the 100th floor. A sky lobby and viewing platform terminate the tower. The form of the pinnacle was inspired by the shape of a lotus flower.

The now steadily rising Haikou Tower South will be opposite the planned 429 m high Haikou Tower North. This tower, also designed by HENN, is similar in structure and facade to its partner and is due to be opened in 2021.

Baubeginn Haikou Tower South

Hainan, China – Oktober 2016: Im neuen Geschäftsviertel der süd-chinesischen Millionenmetropole Haikou begann dieses Jahr der Bau des Haikou Towers South, dessen Fertigstellung für 2020 geplant ist. Mit seinen 428 m markiert er als das höchste Haus der Insel das Zentrum des neuen Geschäftsviertels. Der Turm wird von einer weitläufigen, von Grün und Wasser gesäumten Plaza entlang der Eastern Guo Xing Road eingerahmt, der zentralen Ost-West-Achse der Stadt.

Gestalt und Struktur des Turms sind durch das Programm und ein effizientes Tragwerk bedingt. Acht geneigte Mega-Stützen entlang des Perimeters rotieren um den zentralen Kern und laufen im spitzen Winkel aufeinander zu. Diagonale Druckstreben tragen Windlasten und Torsionskräfte und bilden sich rautenförmig in der Fassade ab.

Baubeginn Haikou Tower South

Die unteren zwei Drittel des Turmes sind für Büronutzung vorgesehen und die Spitze nimmt ein Hotel auf. Die Büroflächen haben weitspannende Deckenplatten mit stützenfreien Innenräumen. Über der dreigeschossigen Hotellobby im 68. Geschoss erstrecken sich die Hotelzimmer vom 73. bis zum 87. Geschoss und ein Atrium in voller Höhe. Eine Skylobby und Aussichtsplattform bilden den oberen Abschluss des Turms. Die Gestaltung der Spitze ist von der Form einer Lotusblüte inspiriert.

Baubeginn Haikou Tower South

Gegenüber des sich im Bau befindlichen Haikou Towers South ist der 429 m hohe Haikou Tower North geplant. Der ebenfalls von HENN entworfene Tower orientiert sich in Struktur und Fassade an seinem Pendant und soll im Jahr 2021 eingeweiht werden.
