Vertical urban space in Zhengzhou design unveiled
Zhenghong Property Air Harbour Office Project, designed by Aedas, comprises three interconnecting office buildings in Zhengzhou, the provincial capital of Henan Province and a major transportation hub in central China.
The design scheme delivers a straight forward solution by laying three office blocks along a narrow site, catering to government, corporate tenants and the client. The blocks are connected by shared facilities and rooftop terraces to deliver three-dimensional vertical urban spaces.
The building form is inspired by the famed Yellow River which winds like a dragon. The 45-degree-angled layout provides an outlook that resembles the winding course of the river, and at the same time maximising both views towards Zhenghong Central Park in the north and distance away from the residential blocks in the south. Such orientation also creates more open spaces on ground level and facilitates ventilation.
Strategically located near Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport with multiple public transport options, the project enjoys excellent connections with a design that enhances accessibility.
