The site is located in the heart of Ningbo city, Zhejiang Province, China, with a prime urban location and impressive landscape and cultural resources. To the south of the site is the 600-year-old Ganlu Temple. The project covers an area of 14,100㎡, with a total construction area of 80500㎡, including 56500㎡ above ground and 24,000㎡ underground.



The project is based on the concept of "three-dimensional garden" in the city, exploring and practicing a new way of green and organic living. The layout of the plan echoes the complex site conditions and the relationship between urban space in many aspects. Due to the complexity of its surroundings and the specificity of its historical context, the architectural design seeks to create a group of buildings that blend into the tone of the city. They are diverse in scale and type, and the new and the old undulate and blend, forming a spatial polyphony that echoes each other.
Considering the small-scale cultural mechanism, the scheme breaks up the commercial along the street to form a small-scale networked space, while forming a multi-level infiltration with the water system, temples and urban roads. (When considering the location of the tower building, the Xueshi Road on the east side was chosen and avoided the axis of the temple in order to respond to the temple architecture with a humble attitude)



01 Extreme view,three-dimensional garden
Through the design concept of " three-dimensional garden ", the project reshaped the spatial relationship between the block and the city, to build a comfortable human nature, green and healthy office and business places. On the one hand, the multi-dimensional retreat space integrates into the urban context logically and consistently, on the other hand, it provides the ultimate landscape vision and resting place for the office and dining space.
02 Exquisite and interesting featured commercial space
The single-family commercial and office podium adopts exquisite block combination mode to form multi-level retreat space. Its spatial layout and the city road, water system and Ganlu Temple form a multi-dimensional penetration, and in the low area surrounded by the inner courtyard as the city's public living room, to create a delicate and interesting characteristic commercial space.
03 Flexible combination mode
Adopted the developable layout concept, the detached commercial buildings along the street and riverside are connected by the corridors on the second floor formed a separable and flexible layout.
04 Innovative headquarters with rich functions
Building an innovative headquarters with rich functions is the focus of the project, so the program implants a variety of functions such as open commercial block, large exhibition space, multi-functional hall, conference center, fitness center and characteristic ecological office.
05 Exquisite headquarters office image

the metamorphosis of industrial plant to garden office
The project faces two major challenges.The Challenge: First, the Present State Building of the Park was built in the 1990s.An old factory building. It's an experiment for biological research.The light collection in the room is severely insufficient to meet the needs of modern scientific research office use.Second, the exterior appearance of the building is old and does not conform to the image of the business in the new era.
Strategies for Architectural Remodeling 1:
Find the integration and contrast of "new" and "old"scientifically updated architectural appearance,
"New" - A New Image of Color showing the vanguard of modern technology;
"Old" -- Unadorned Old Sense of Oldness pass on the memory of a hundred years of culture.

Through the water.The arrangement of plants is effective in regulating indoor microclimate.Sunlight, air, water and green plants bring light and vitality to the gloomy, dull old factory buildings.
Water is the source of life, and the design reproduces the fall,"The variety of water forms, such as flooding, dripping, mist, etc., has created mountains and rivers"A vivid spatial conception, a symbol of green vitality.Life grows.
The mountains and rivers are moving, interpreting the source of health.fountainhead

Garden Restaurant, converted from industrial buildings, is a magnificent spectacle.Cool industrial wind, high-cool and friendly.
A Hundred Years of Events: The Park Story of the Park
We used the exterior of the old building.On its face, it looks back on the great historical events of the century.From the establishment of the Central Bureau of Disease Control in 1919 to 194The first penicillin strain was isolated in two years, then smallpox eradicated in early 1960, the establishment of the National Engineering Research Center for New Vaccines in 2005, the WHO pre-validated vaccine in 2013 until the development of the new Crown Vaccines in 2020.We feel the greatness of the Mesozoic, and we are proud of them.
Chinese organisms 1919-2019, BaiIt's built up every year, and it's going to be passed down...

The whole project stand on a podium that has several shared spaces for the workers and allows the direct connection between the buildings thanks to bridges and ramps.
The facades are designed with metallic profiles that give a shading effect using different distances between them and defining so the production volumes.

The facades without the metallic profiles use the concept of the “light box” and they are made with U-Glass; in these case they correspond to the offices and managing areas.
Under every “light cube” the architects subtracted a volume from the podium to make entrances.
The total area of the project is around 60,000sqm. The new development is going to be a new landmark for the city of Guangdong and a icon for the company brand.
