Heartland 66 Retail, Office & Residential by Aedas

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Heartland 66

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Retail, Office & Residential

INSPIRATION:
The design response was inspired by the traditional Chinese knot, tied and woven from a single length of cord or rope in a variety of shapes and of varying complexity, which conveyed information prior to the development of writing. By adopting this infinity loop form we were able to make a symbolic connection and establish a multi-level circulation network that feeds the site and its surroundings, where concourse levels, podium retail and link bridges act as an integrated network. 

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The LEED Gold certified mixed-use development is situated in downtown Wuhan in central China. The features of the building are inspired by and take reference from the local culture, climate and traditions, which fuse with the specific functional requirements of the programme. Where the building’s scale relates to the strong character of its surroundings by increasing permeability through the gentle raising of the building from the ground the design opens up the building into the public realm.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The design resulted from understanding Wuhan’s social, environmental and cultural aspects, focusing not just on its heritage, but also embracing the needs of the dynamic modern global citizen. The intimate roof garden, the sweeping sunken plaza, the stepped terraces and the subtle lifting of the building from the ground is a response to the need for alfresco activities and increased public green space resulting from the changing local climate and evolving modern Chinese family dynamics.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design started in April 2013 and construction will finish in August 2019 in Wuhan, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The form and massing of the LEED gold-certified buildings adhere to the city’s prevailing wind corridors that enhance natural ventilation. By widely introducing greenery and landscaping, the stepping terraces and decks not only vitalize the outdoor spaces activities, but the green roof also improves the performance of roof insulation and effectively reduces building heat gain. The energy saving effect is particularly significant in Wuhan which enjoys hot summer and cold winter climates.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Gross Floor Area : 460,000 square meters Land area : 82,600 square meters Retail podium:50m Office tower:325m 3 serviced apartment:150m, 175m and 200m

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The building mass, form and section was developed using fire engineering to simulate evacuation and smoke extraction beyond the standard code requirement. The exact sloping features of the roof and atrium spaces inside were shaped through an iterative process to provide a smoke reservoir at high level away from populated floors and the atrium voids are also linked and shaped as funnels to further enhance the stack effect and draw up smoke to these reservoirs.

CHALLENGE:
The dynamic infinity loop roof and form enclosing the podium evolved as a response to the site’s circulation resulting from a bisecting road, the arrangement of programme and the movement between these. The tower form evolves the infinity loop concept as the multiple masses subtly entwine into the lantern as it adapts to the requirements of an office. The master plan design interlocks the green space extending from the ancient Han River and the heart of the city’s central business district.
