The architectural proposals for the first batch of 12 enterprises in Shenzhen Bay Super Headquarters Base, Nanshan District, have been approved by the city government, Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported.
Fortune 500 companies including China Merchants Bank, Evergrande, Vanke and Hengli Group, as well as many leading enterprises in the fields of finance, Internet, telecommunications and life science and technology, have settled in the area, which is expected to take shape over the next five years.
The international headquarters building of OPPO, a smartphone maker in China, was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The building will adopt a streamlined shape to give it the best views, while the diagonal public entrance and exit provide efficient connection to the space.
The project is adjacent to the bus station and the underground floor is connected to the Metro.
Meanwhile, there will also be a special art exhibition area within the building; the art gallery and viewing platform will be open to the public.
The headquarters building of ZTE takes “Shenzhen Tide” as the concept, with flexibility and reconfigurable configuration being the core of the scheme. The oblique atrium runs through the whole building, connecting the lobby and the ZTE club with two “water drops” in a wavy rhythm.
Buro Ole Scheeren, an international architecture firm, was in charge of the design, according to the Daily.
The CITIC Financial Center, designed by Gensler, creates two iconic, structurally expressive towers. The project hopes to create a variety of spaces for citizens, such as small squares that can be used for gatherings, which will be in contrast to the large belt-like park running through the headquarters base from north to south.
The design scheme of Digital China’s headquarters building takes “pixel” as the motif, with two kinds of cell textures forming a virtual-real comparison. Shenzhen Huahui Design Consultant Co. was responsible for the project.
