Hangzhou Gateway, China : Gongshu District Building

Hangzhou Tower – design by JDS Architects – Julien De Smet

31 May 2011

Hangzhou Tower

Design: JDS Architects – Julien De Smet

Project Description

The concept of the building is to create a gateway that is neither closing-off or dividing the city. The 15-story tower features offices, restaurants, post office, a terraced roof garden and a sunken passage that leads through a shopping center.

The rooftop terraces offer generous views to the distant nature while the stone louvers provide a sustainable solution to the office conditions.

The building will become the gateway for the Gongshu District and an icon for the urban transformation of the old industrial neighborhood.
