Center One International Green Island

by Zeybekoglu and Associates, Inc.

Projet Description

Parking +Ride Mode
Center One, International Green Island is located in the portal of Baguang area in Dapeng new district, Shenzhen. The site is surrounded by the mountain and the sea, with the east side and north side adjacent to the urban waterfront landscape corridor, enjoying an excellent ecological environment. As the pioneering project of three public transportation hubs in Baguang area and the start-up project of the central area of Biovalley Shenzhen, the design aims to build the project into a new scientific innovation service complex integrating green ecology, intelligence, high efficiency and vitality space.
Old Layout, New Image
The project adopts the traditional courtyard layout, high-rise buildings are set up along the urban fringe, and podium buildings are laid out as efficiently as possible. In terms of building image, the roof of the surrounding high-rise buildings uses the set-back model, with high and low platforms, echoing the rolling mountains in the distance, while ensuring a good view facing the sea. Meanwhile, the straight and sharp facades of street corners create a strong visual effect.
Multi-dimensional Public Space
We create a three-dimensional public space system composing the underground, the ground and the air, organically linking mountains, the sea and the city. By opening to the city street corners and integrating into a public transport hub, the project will bring a continuous flow of people and vitality and ensure the sustainable development of the area. The public open space has built a comfortable urban living room to meet the citizens’ need of transferring, landscape viewing, relaxing and entertaining, and stimulates a vibrant urban life.
