Celebrate the 'breaking ground'

South station Headquarter office, Guangzhou


Although the work on the construction site already started some time ago, the moment to celebrate the 'breaking ground' ceremony finally came. Observed by several dragons and hostesses in traditional costumes, the developer, the buyer/owner and their guests witnessed this first official event on a beautiful sunny day.

This headquarter office is situated at a prominent location near the Guangzhou South high-speed railway station. The strength of this concept lies in its simplicity. The curved massing is a mere result of the given height limitations; the curves simply connect the higher and lower volumes. Together with the pronounced main entrance and retail podium it provides a solid destination and a powerful landmark for the big square in front of it.
