Workspace of the Week – Shenzhen Vanke Headquarters

Break out area with multicoloured block seating - wide shot

This week, we’re turning our attention to the newly designed offices for real estate developer Vanke, located in Shenzhen, China.

Shenzhen Vanke Headquarters is a very good example on how the environment protection and energy-saving are blended into architecture. The architecture concept of  the floating horizon skyscraper͛ by Steven Holl, after ten years of growth, has become a real sustainable landmark landscape standing high in the city.

The whole project shows Vanke’s sincere exploration on the relationships between man and man, man and nature, as well as man and society; its humble and low-profile gesture on building the bridge between nature livings and urban life.
