Eco garden office campus, Guangzhou
The site is located in the Panyu district of Guangzhou and benefits from a natural green hill on the southern border. It targets tech, IT and mobile industry, from start-ups to matured medium sized enterprises. Since the people working in this industry are relatively young, the aim is to develop an attracting healthy and green working environment in which every company can express their individual qualities while benefit from a powerful collective; a platform.
Using the organization and expression of a traditional mountain village, combined with advanced knowledge of contemporary business campuses, the best of two worlds is combined. An outer ring of mid-sized units with sunken gardens, green patios and roof gardens absorbs the green qualities of its surrounding and maximizes the feeling of working in the green. The central building and its central sunken plaza provide shared facilities such as exhibition/event space, gym, convenience store, f&b and incubator spaces.
The overall architecture design has a consistent ‘modern eco’ expression, in which every unit has its refinement to express individuality. Un its on the outer ring can be combined into bigger units when needed to offer maximum flexibility for the users.
