Design of the office headquarters of 3PEAK


Project Description

The project base is located in plot H05-B 01 of Top Scientist Community in Lingang New Area, Shanghai. It is adjacent to Huanhu 3rd Road in the north, EW 1st Road in the south, NS 10th Road in the west, and NS 3rd Road in the east. The north side is adjacent to the urban green belt and Chunlian River Landscape Park, the east is adjacent to the waterfront landscape of Chenghe Port, and the west and south sides focus on creating a street atmosphere with a sense of technological community. Each boundary is highlighted and the atmosphere is clear and orderly. The base is square, with a maximum width of 300m in the north-south direction, a narrowest width of 220m, and an average of 330m in the east-west direction, with a site area of 17,529㎡.
As a key high-tech enterprise project in Lingang with chip design and simulation as its main business, the headquarters office of 3peak includes 2 floors underground, 11 floors above ground, and a height of 60 meters, of which the above ground area is 52,520 square meters. Its main functions are semiconductor research and development offices and chip equipment laboratories, and its auxiliary functions are mainly restaurants, lecture halls, and gymnasiums. Its headquarters office building integrates multiple functions such as "scientific research, development, experimentation, office, and service", providing employees and visitors with a people-oriented and comfortable space.
The architectural design uses "uneven enclosure" to echo the image of the city's waterfront, and the functional layout presents a "homocentric squares" circular layout. The northwest corner is the highest point of 60M, and the height gradually decreases to the southeast corner to the lowest point of 10.5M. The facade design further strengthens the clear and grand image of science and technology through small-scale metal grids, and enhances the intimacy of the courtyard through the warm texture of stone. Through the action of softening the boundary, the upright and introverted warmth is realized. The building is like Noah's Ark docked by the river, exuding a sense of technological tolerance and sailing towards the future.
