Excellence Huanggang Century Center

As part of an invited, international design competition, Leo A Daly created the winning conceptual designs for the new Excellence Huanggang Century Center-a major mixed-use project in Shenzhen, China. Comprising four gateways and four towers it is a modern design inspired by ancient Chinese customs. The individual towers and gateways collectively total the most auspicious number in Chinese culture, the number 8, a symbol of prosperity and good fortune.

These buildings organically mesh into one another to form the heart of the development-a central courtyard and the focal point of the vibrant retail and entertainment venue that occupies the base of the design on the ground level. Each tower is an individual component to this mixed-use development comprising over 4,305,564 SF (400,000 SM) of retail, office, and residential spaces, as well as a hotel and 365,973 SF (34,000 SM) of underground parking.

These buildings are a unique contribution to the city of Shenzhen. They highlight the prismatic forms of the development and are connected to one another by lasers composing a three-dimensional grid that will redefine the city skyline, herald the excitement contained within, and help to integrate the Excellence Huanggang Century Center more fully into the surrounding community.
