Building site faces an 18m wide planned roadway in the front and a 40m setback in the back that together with the opposite site, an 80m central greenbelt is formed.
Two building blocks are designed for the complex, with the connection of 200m long shared space on the ground and second floors. The complex is designed for 3,000 users. Office and research/development spaces are primarily the main functions while dining hall, art gallery, gymnasium, health center, and a 300-seat auditorium are supporting common functions. 1800 cars and 800 motorcycles parking space are provided in the basements.
To take advantage of the 80m greenbelt in the back, the buildings are terraced with fingers configuration to allow light and natural green scenery to penetrate into the working space. Horizontal and vertical screens and frames are used on façade design to create interesting variations according to the orientation of the elevations. Double height spaces with clear glazing are created for lobby, dining hall and auditorium foyer to enhance indoor/outdoor continuation. Partial curved façade and roofline are introduced to reduce the tension to the long roadway frontage, and to create a unique appearance to this otherwise standard office complex.
