Atkins to design waterfront Huarong Hengqin Tower as part of Hengqin Island District


Atkins has been appointed to design the Huarong Hengqin Tower in Zhuhai, China. Atkins’ architecture and urban design studio was selected by the developer Huarong Real Estate through a design competition, to provide an eye-catching and modern design which specifically responds to the site and the environment.

This mixed-use development contains accommodation for a 5-star hotel, international grade-A offices and top brand retail facilities. It will be one of the first buildings to be constructed as part of the large masterplan for the new economic zone of Hengqin Island District. This development benefits from a prime location facing the waterfront only a few hundred metres from the world-famous tourist Cotai strip in Macau.

Atkins’ Design Director, Ian Milne, said: “The towers are orientated to provide hotel guests and office users with stunning views of significant landmarks in Macau, while respecting the development potential and view corridors of adjacent sites.” The building orientation also protects its main entrances from wind, while the façade consists of louvers in wavy forms which shade unwanted glare and accentuate the concept of a rippling water surface.

The Huarong Hengqin Tower is the first appointment of Atkins’ architecture and urban design studio by Huarong, and will become the latest landmark in Zhuhai. Other projects in the region include the MIPIM gold award winning Intercontinental hotel for Shimao in Songjiang and the Lotus hotel near Shanghai.
