Wenzhou City, China
Shaping a sense of community
This 460-meter mixed-use complex is located at the heart of the new central business district in Suzhou, China. Its three interconnected towers integrate apartments, office space, and retail into a mixed-use community. The tower will become a new landmark in Suzhou—a modern expression of the city’s enduring values and quality of life.
The tower is designed to create an intimate sense of community, with small floor plates and only a few residences per floor. The building’s three vertical volumes are linked by sky bridges, at floors 17, 49, and 77. Designed as multifunctional social hubs, the sky bridges contain amenities focused on wellness and family life: play and study areas, fitness amenities, and outdoor terraces. With sweeping views toward the surrounding lakes and historic areas of the city, the bridges provide an inspiring setting for residents to interact.
The tower’s transparent crown contains additional gathering spaces beneath a petal-shaped roof. The aperture of the transparent glass floor is inspired by the moon gates of Suzhou’s traditional gardens.
