Hangzhou Gateway Tower

As the first prize winner in the Hangzhou Gateway Tower Architecture Competition, JDS Architect’s building concept is to create a gateway that is neither closing-off or dividing the city. The 15-story tower features offices, restaurants, post office, a terraced roof garden and a sunken passage that leads through a shopping center. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The rooftop terraces offer generous views to the distant nature while the stone louvers provide a sustainable solution to the office conditions.

The building will become the gateway for the Gongshu District and an icon for the urban transformation of the old industrial neighborhood.
