EHA participate in Ningbo competition

Ector Hoogstad Architecten participated in an invited competition for a new administrative center in Ningbo, China. The speedy growth of this city naturally also results in a bigger government and more office space to accommodate it. A number of existing office buildings will therefore be substantially enlarged. In our case an existing small office building in colonial style is provided with a 80.000 sq.m. extension, consisting of office space, commercial space, restaurants, meeting center and an underground parking facility. In our proposal the existing building is kept as the main focal point of the new complex containing (among other) VIP-rooms and the formal main entrance. A transparent volume connects it to the base of the extension. One hundred meter high twin towers are placed symmetrically behind the existing building. The new building smoothly adapts to the shifting angles of the site, and tries to be as respectful to its neighbors as possible by creating minimum impact towards the housing blocks to the west and continuing the profile of the street to the north. The architectural articulation of the facades is elegantly vertical, enhancing the slenderness of the towers and creating a neutral backdrop for the existing building. The winner will be announced within the next coming weeks.
