A workplace open to the city and to nature
Located in the Qianhai District of Shenzhen, China, the 31-story, 140,000-square-meter headquarters of WeBank—the first privately-owned and digital-only bank in China—integrates technology, sustainability, and design innovation to advance the company’s mission centered on inclusive finance and banking. Expected to be completed in 2022, the new headquarters will include a series of flexible workspaces, planted terraces and gardens, blended indoor-outdoor spaces, and a diverse series of high performance design strategies for a healthy, collaborative, and amenity-rich working environment.
Inspired by the regional architectural tradition of the Lingan style, the building is open to the city, with the public spaces of the surrounding district woven into the work environment. Open arcades and courtyards improve access and connectivity at street level. Large floor plates and multi-story, mixed-mode spaces throughout the tower promote interaction, knowledge sharing, and adaptability for future workplace evolution. A series of terraced atria provide rich daylighting and natural ventilation for interior spaces.
