Design of High Rise Office Buildings, Hotels, Serviced
Apartments China - AAPAC GROUP
proposed riverfront development
is located on prime land adjacent to an opera house which is of a half
dome shape design. The 7 towers, which will be seen from boats
travelling up and down the river, are start of a long row of high rise
buildings to be developed according to a master plan of the new CBD.
two high rise office buildings (tallest towers) have been orientated so
that their main entries face the opera house, which is the focal
point of interest in the area. This orientation is further
strengthened with two outdoor sculptural boomerang
which define an entry forecourt in front of the towers. The
towers are positioned to allow view corridors for other future
developments behind towards the waterfront and the river.
office towers are orientated with the shortest face facing west so that
heat gain due to exposure to western sun is kept to the minimum.
This is an energy efficient design feature and also a
sustainability design consideration. The wider faces of the
towers are angled to provide maximum view to the water, the opera house
and the central open space of the new CBD.
hotel twin towers are orientated to provide rooms with maximum view of
upstream and downstream of the river. The rooms on the rear side
will have views towards the central open space of the CBD and other
open spaces among future high rise developments adjacent to the site.
The serviced apartments twin towers are designed in such a way so
that every unit will enjoy water view, including rear units.
top of each tower in the whole development is designed with coffee
shops, restaurants or other public facilities. Water view and CBD
view, which are the main asset of the site, can be captured and
maximized. Roofs have been sloped in certain towers to allow view of
the immediate surrounding, the opera house and the public
waterfront promenade from the roof top
different heights and angled orientation of the office towers and hotel
towers create an interesting composition of the development,
especially when viewed from the public waterfront promenade in front of
the opera house.
AAPAC GROUP always aims to maximize the natural asset of a site and
relate new development to its setting. Energy efficient design and sustainability
design are also important consideration in our architectural design
