Future TimesShenzhen, China
Located in Qianhai, a special financial district emerging in Shenzhen, the project comprises of office, serviced apartment, hotel, retail and residences, and is located abut of an on-grade metro maintenance depot.
Situated in between the urban island and the high-density urban jungle, connectivity becomes a great challenge to this project. To mitigate the city edge created by the gigantic train depot development, the project uses the concept of a multi-dimensional “green carpet” to seamlessly connect the site with its surrounding environment. Accentuated with various event space and programme, the “green carpet” aims to provide a breathing space and a leisure public realm to the future financial district.
