Jianfa HQ Tower is an oasitic expression in the heart of Yinchuan city, the capital of Ningxia province in North West of China. It is an 80m grade-A office tower that sits in a prominent spot of the new Yuehai Lake CBD. The project is occupying an important intersection between the CBD inner ring, Yuehai road, and the central boulevard, Dalian middle road, next to a landmark green belt.
The design concept is derived from a dynamic motion of water droplet that symbolizes the ‘urban oasis’, which is an attribute to Yinchuan itself known as ‘Oasis in the Desert’, the water resource for its surrounding desert. The restrained tension of water drop is expressed on the building form, melting to the ground from the step-terrace style HQ office at the top of the tower. The podium of the tower is more grounded forming a water splash that is represented by the smaller pieces of massing composition absorbed into the ground.
The project proposes a new integrated and flexible office building that offers the concept of Activity Based Working and people-centric workspace. Rethinking the type of office building and its function, the core mission is to create a positive social impact and to activate the work and play environment.
