RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The site planning of the project respects for the Park’s master planning concepts and completed all important street façade. The buildings require the design to reflect concise and simple building style to exhibit the China chic and they are determined with respect to function, scale, height limit, fire protection and so on. The employees of the enterprise are mainly young people aged 25 on average, so the office needs to meet the needs of office life of more than 13,000 young people.

CHALLENGE:
The way to fully reflect local features of Beijing and integrate them with design was the first issue that architects confronted with. The way to build headquarters buildings on scattered plots and maintain their integrality was the second one. According to urban planning criteria, heights of buildings are limited to less than 30m. It’s a challenge to build landmark buildings in this case. In an enterprise with an average age of less than 25 years old, design should meet the needs of young people.
