YGMG Mixed-use DevelopmentYunnan, China
Located in the Kunming Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone, the project is a mixed-use development, with a total CFA of 190,000sqm. It comprises a 200m tall Grade-A office tower, a multi-function podium and a serviced apartment hotel.
The top floors of the office tower will serve as the new corporate headquarters for the client, while the mid and low zones will provide rentable office spaces. The undulating curtain wall system consists of both Low-E double glazed fixed vision glazing and operable windows, allowing for maximal control by the occupants over natural ventilation, hence minimising the amount of artificial heating and cooling required by the buildings.
The four-storey high podium is broken down into several masses to establish a human scale street environment and at the same time facilitate pedestrian movement between precincts. High-end retail, dining area, convention and exhibition centres are accommodated within the individual masses.
Overall, the development incorporates a number of sustainable design features, such as a naturally ventilated and a skylit atrium, photovoltaic panels and solar water heating system, rainwater recycling and grey water purification.
