建筑面积 164 900平方米
Having gone through a 6-year design and construction process since May 2015, Zhuhai Hengqin Fang Da Cheng Tower designed by AUBE Conception sees its official completion in January 2021. Located on the Financial Island at the northeast end of Hengqin New District, Zhuhai Fang Da Cheng Tower is a super high-rise complex integrating commerce, office and business apartments with a total floor area of approximately 164,900 square meters and an overall height of 266 meters.
Positioned as a demonstration area for exploring new models of cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao under the "one country, two systems" policy, Hengqin New Area is also a pilot zone for reinforcing the "reform and opening up" policy along with technological innovation. The Financial Island where locates the project is the core area to manifest Hengqin's financial innovation. In the future, it will become an experimental field for financial reform, creating a metropolitan CBD centering on offshore financial development and financial innovation.
Facing both the mountains and the sea, Zhuhai Fang Da Cheng Tower sits at the junction where Huitong 2nd Road meets Rongyue Road on Hengqin Financial Island. With Huitong 3rd Road to the north, the central green space to the east and Rongyue Road to the west, the project enjoys a predominant site with transportation of convenience and extraordinary scenery. In layout, the Tower pays respect to a wider architectural skyline planning of the neighborhood with careful considerations of the Tower's position so as to avoid any unfavorable impact on the surrounding buildings. As for its overall image, by applying design methods including the use of vertical members, a curved roof form and naturally ordered point elements, the building is styled with a natural ecological quality.
The building celebrates a functional layout in program. Due to its strong public nature of the office tower, the design team arranges the space along the southwest corner of the plot. A generously open interface along the street is thus formed to serve as a pedestrian entrance plaza for the convenience of the office occupants to gather and evacuate during rush hours whilst satisfying the planning requirements. On the other side, the commercial podium is set along the east site boundary to optimize the commercial interface facing the public green space, which both enhances the sequence of public pedestrian spaces and maximizes the project's economic value.
The project encompass 4 levels of underground car parks and 56 aboveground floors, of which Level l to Level 3 accommodate commercial facilities and a parking garage. Bearing the unpredictable subtropical insular climate in mind, the design has a public pedestrian corridor on Level 2 of the commercial podium connecting the north and south parts which truly adapts to the weather conditions and achieves "no umbrellas in sunny days, nor wet shoes in rainy days".
Overlooking the Tower, a "cross-shaped" roof plan unfolds into a blooming lily flower. Similar approaches are also applied to the overall façade design, deconstructing and reconstructing the stamens, petals and markings of a lily flower into individual parts of the building.
The main body of the project adopts a textured surface combining light-colored metal panels collocating with glass patches, focusing on the horizontal elements in rhyme and rhythm to organize components of different widths into waves that running flat and hence bolster the building’s coastal character. The façade elements of the upper tower extend into the lower podium, taking advantages of multiple variants generating from the same concept to address the difference in elevations of the commercial podium and the street-level parking garage, forming a unified whole with diverse detailing treatments of richness and harmony.
AUBE Conception combines its insular characteristics of Hengqin Financial Island during the projec's implementation process by designating a color palette primarily in white, green and blue that not only blends into the local architectural context but also meets the requirements in architectural color scheme of the Financial Island. The Tower follows green design principle of ecological energy saving and selects native vegetation species according to local conditions, which improves the greening rate of the site and meanwhile reduces the maintenance cost. At the same time, part of the site is covered with permeable paving, which is capable to effectively alleviate urban heat island effect, improve thermal comfort, and reduce air conditioning and refrigeration loads. At the moment, the project has been awarded the national Two-star Green Building Certificate.
Zhuhai Hengqin Fang Da Cheng Tower not only pursues the rational unity of form and function while emphasizing the integration of cultural locality and international standards, but also strives to provide occupants with quality work, living and entertainment spaces with high efficiency, great flexibility and humanistic care. The project strives to meet the diversified needs of the neighboring communities, promotes the further development of Zhuhai Hengqin New District, and contributes to the advancement of the financial innovation-centered Financial Island.
