Guangzhou International Finance CenterEdit profile
Our design for Guangzhou’s new East Tower was submitted as part of a competitive land tender to the city of Guangzhou. The proposals are for a 475m tower with 105 storeys of accommodation. The tower will contain 285,000sqm of accommodation, predominately office space with restaurant and public sightseeing levels located at the top of the building. Located in Zhujiang New Town, the East Tower sits adjacent to Wilkinson Eyre’s International Finance Centre (currently under construction) but retains its own distinctive character and identity. A podium contains a further 30,000sqm of retail and office space contained within a dynamic curving block, connecting to below-ground retail space linking the two towers. The concept utilises double skin facades, photovoltaics and wind turbines to ensure high environmental efficiency.
