International Architecture Practice, 10 Design (part of Egis Group) is pleased to announce the completion of Jinwan Huafa International Business Center, an iconic landmark as well as growth engine of the Jinwan District in the coastal city of Zhuhai, China.
Located on a prime waterfront site in Zhuhai, China, the 172,033 sq m International Business Centre (IBC) is a mixed-use complex comprising hotel, office, serviced apartment and retail spaces.
As part of the 3.8 sq km masterplan of the new Jinwan Aviation City, IBC is the third project that 10 Design has created for Huafa Group in the district. The other two developments include the Industrial Services Centre and Jinwan Mall which sits across the Jinsha Lake.
Derived from aerodynamic shapes, the elegant twin towers resemble a pair of aircraft wings. The towers are both symmetrical about a vertical axis with the soft elliptical form at each end to create an elegant profile against the sky. IBC’s iconic design creates a new landmark for the district while allowing for an efficient planning envelope with regular floor plans conducive to office, hotel and apartment functions.
The two towers are oriented to maximize views toward the waterfront and the public park on either side. Standing in strong dialogue with each other, they complement to the district's notable north-south axis, framing views through the centre of the site.
The shared podium is a series of carved volumes, which defines the pedestrian retail streets from the north arrival plaza through to the lakefront in the south. A flowing, open-edge balcony circulation provides multiple spectacular vantage points for visitors and offers opportunities for al fresco dining.
The IBC is a unified statement of the ongoing transition of the Jinwan Aviation City, creating a dynamic gateway for the area as well as an animated public space welcoming visitors from adjacent communities and beyond.
