Shuibei Jewelry Headquarters Building
The project is located in Shuibei industrial zone, Luohu District of Shenzhen, close to Luohu CBD, in the north of Shenzhen jewelry industry base and near the city central area. It is connected with the Shuibei metro station of line 3. Total floor area is 245663.77㎡including two high-rise towers. The 48-story tower A is for R&D office and dormitory, and a helicopter parking apron is set on the top of tower A. The 35-storey tower B is for R&D office. A 5-storey commercial podium and a 4-storey basement are connected at the bottom of Tower B. Structure of frame-shear wall and frame core tube are both applied here.
Because of the limited land and roads around the plot, large land height difference between the south part and the north part, great pressure for transportation, it is difficult to address the problem by ordinary plane transportation design. Thus, the design approach of double ground floors is used for the commercial podium. Civil roads to the south and the north of the project are linked by internal roads, and together forms a transportation ring for this project. This way greatly increases vehicle traffic efficiency. Meanwhile, a commercial traffic flow goes through the south and north entrances, attracting people flow to the project.
Stick to the idea that “basing on serving the city, injecting passion into architecture”, AUBE focuses on sustainable operation of super high-rise buildings, and skillfully combines architectural technology with architectural aesthetics. A landmark jewelry trade market in Shenzhen-Hong Kong area is built with good utility and economy, comfortable functional space, graceful appearance. It is a showcase of the taste and spirit value of jewelry industry.
Hard and simple lines are used for the facade, which represent the features of crystal and gem. The two towers are upright. Specially designed glass curtain walls create a brilliant effect. Design of the podium echoes the image of the towers. Simple materials are used to create a graceful appearance and shows the taste and spirit value of jewelry industry.
