It is often used to describe a newborn power.

The project creates an unique building icon that highlight the location and celebrate the local culture.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in Hengqin Block, Shizimen CBD. It possesses optimal panoramic mountain views, faces the landscape axis in Hengqing CBD masterplan on the south, and overlooks Peninsular Macao on the north, with grand sea view and Taipa Island on the east, and is opposite to the booming Zhuhai Eastern New Area on the west.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The facades are composed of mainly metal plates, and two different curtain wall glass to highlight its unique architecture form.

CHALLENGE:
The project consists of a 334-metre mixed-use high rise with a retail podium and a 30-metre lantern crown rooftop.
