China Nanshan Development Group Office Tower
After winning the competition of the 150m high Nanshan Tower, detailed planning followed. The selected building core layout creates a central zone that can be used for meeting, recreation and air garden. The normally enclosed building core traffic area get access to natural lighting and ventilation. At the same time, a vertical connection is created through the entire building. Views of the surrounding nature and visual connections inside the building are possible. The facade design promote a holistic appearance. The goal was to have a continuous glass panel in each floor. The necessary window openings are integrated in the window frame and therefore not directly visible from the outside. Window elements in the main facade are orientated at an angle to the floor slab. A differentiated appearance are created in realtionship of the viewpoint, at the same time there is additional direct sun protection generated.
