Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
Designed by Aedas, Gmond International Building is a representative regeneration project in the old town in Shenzhen. The project will house the headquarters for Tellus-Gmond, Grade 5A lettable office spaces and a jewelry trading center. The well-facilitated transport hub nearby brings enormous circulation to the complex and generates excellent development potentials.
The architectural form of this 200-meter super high-rise is referenced to the traditional Chinese totem of bamboo which symbolizes prosperity and moral integrity. The ascending podium massing recaptures a growing bamboo, featuring exterior landscaped staircases, public platforms, eco-friendly rooftop gardens and an art center that will also serve as a jewelry exhibition venue. The podium façade expresses as large bamboo leaves to enclose the commercial component forming an interesting duet with the blooming tower.
