The project is located in Xiasha City, Hangzhou. The site is 20 minutes to 30 minutes away from Hangzhou East Railway Station and Hangzhou Railway Station by driving. It is 20 minutes drive from Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport. Xiasha City is one of the sub-centers of Hangzhou, and the industry has changed from industrial manufacturing to science and technology. There are mainly Science and Technology Park and university campus around the site. The site is adjacent to the city’s main road in the north, and has very good traffic access.
This urban planning project has three major orientations: 1. Highlighting the policy of technology innovation and industrial innovation. In Xiasha Street, the new policy of technology and industrial innovation is the basis for guiding the positioning of the project. 2. Emphasize the concept of space exchange. Responding to the policy of raising the land usage and space exchange, build a innovation industrial park on the original stock industrial land. 3. Guided by the concept of industrial clusters, create a new type of techno park with complete functions and comfort environment. The project will build three levels of offices: headquarters industrial clusters, standard office and public space to adapt the multiple needs of the creators.
In the urban planning, the whole site of the project is divided into five sections: high-rise research and development zone, multi-layer research and development zone, supporting service zone, demonstration zone and gateway plaza. The site is planned to be diverted by people and vehicles. The Landscape designing and urban space design are complement with each other. In terms of landscape, there are mainly core landscapes, garden landscapes and riverside landscapes; in terms of urban space, there are mainly entrance plazas, core plazas and open spaces.
For the architectural design, the project is based on the intention of “enterprise aircraft carrier and technology crystallization”, and it also demonstrates the ambition and strength of Xiashahangdian Industrial Park as the leading enterprise of the techno park in Xiasha. For the stand-alone office near the entrance of the site, the facade that’s adjacent to the river is cut to form a retreat, to have a rich vision of the landscape. The facade that’s adjacent to the parkland is cut to form an overhead entrance, building a vision corridor from street corner to the center of the park. All the office buildings have a rooftop platform, making open leisure space for multiple situations. The whole multi-story office building array are covered of curved streamlined appearance, their nimble facade perceives both sense and sensibility, and the whole array are just like a fleet that’s on the crest of the waves. There are two high-rise buildings set at the other entrance of the site, forming the fiscal point of the vision.
