Disposition of the blocks allows the prevailing wind to penetrate the inner city providing ventilation through the Open Door passage, it also allows solar access to the site from the south, while the stepped heights of the buildings allow airflow mixing and recirculation, channeling wind from higher elevations to enhance air ventilation at pedestrian level. The Central Government Offices have double roof photovoltaic solar panels installed while the Chief Executive’s Office has thermal chimney, full height atrium as well as a green solar screen on its west – facing wall. Water conservation has been implemented and rain water collected has been recycled for landscape irrigation

AE Interests: The design center is for the international fashion group, Xinhee, and its six subsidiary brands. It has a site area of 15,000 square meters with building area of 61,000 square meters. The spatial organization mimics six petals, growing from a central point. Each of the six brands have their own individual office and research space, yet can freely interact and communicate between departments. A mix of office spaces and green gardens compose each of the organically-formed arms. A translucent and sun-shading envelope of PTFE hangs slightly off the vertical garden, and provides ventilation during the hot season. The atrium’s footbridge provides air circulation, and doubles as a catwalk for occasional fashion shows.
