Goettsch Partners Unwrap Tianjin Supertall

Published on 07-11-2010 by Skyscrapernews.com
Coming from the pens of Goettsch Partners is another supertall tower proposed for the Chinese city of Tianjin.

With a height of 439 metres, the scheme is being developed by Guangzhou R&F Properties as a mixed use development to contain 294,570 square metres of space and 91 occupiable levels. This will include 134,900 square metres of grade A office space, 55 condos, a 400 bedroom five star hotel, and 8,550 square metres of retail on the lower floors.

The tower is designed to set back as it rises and as the number of service cores in the building that host 55 lifts decrease. This means that despite the shrinking size of the tower on the upper levels, the space between the core and the building perimeter will actually be the same as on the lower floors.

Working as a slickly glazed affair, the tower has been planned to have what appears to be an unwrapping motion as it rises. Along with the curving corners on the building, this is intended to reference ancient Chinese scrolls. Exploiting this concept are the atria located at every point that the tower unwraps whilst on top of each will be a landscaped roof.

Construction has yet to begin on site as the architects are still working on polishing the design, but they expect the scheme to be completed in 2015 making an impressive counterpoint to the nearby Sinosteel Tower.

nice to see some proper renderings of it, and it looks really good.

For exact plot location, check Urbika.
A more detailed description can be found on Goettsch Partners website.

Goettsch Partners (GP) has been commissioned by developer Guangzhou R&F Properties Co. Ltd. to design a new 294,570-square-meter mixed-use tower in the city of Tianjin, China. Occupying a central parcel in the city’s newly planned business district, Tianjin R&F Guangdong Tower will be one of China’s tallest buildings at 439 meters. The complex features 134,900 square meters of Class A office space, a 400-key five-star hotel, 55 condominiums, and 8,550 square meters of retail. The tower is designed to establish a signature visual profile in the city skyline and provide a destination for the people of Tianjin and beyond.

The building’s design responds to the programmatic needs of each function, as well as to the decreasing size of the core. The tower unwraps around its vertical axis as it ascends, similar in nature to a shell or ancient scroll. In this manner, the form relates to the historical context of the site’s location in the Tanggu district, a point of sea trade. The unwinding form also creates unique opportunities to introduce multi-story atria into the program in each vertical zone. These landscaped interior spaces provide ideal circulation for multi-floor tenants, daylighting for deeper lease spans, and inviting social meeting spaces within the building’s upper floors. The landscaped interiors are an instrumental part of the overall environmental sensitivity to the new downtown’s iconic centerpiece.

Clearly defining the building’s circulation pattern is critical to achieving a successful mixed-use project. The site’s vehicular circulation is divided by function for efficient access to the tower from the main roads. Pedestrian circulation is further segregated throughout the site, with a landscaped plaza on the building’s north side that creates a welcoming arrival space for the complex. Internally, each of the primary building programs is separated at the ground floor, providing clear and intuitive wayfinding for the occupants. Access from the ground floor to each of the primary building functions is then provided by a network of 55 elevators, which quickly and efficiently deliver guests to their destinations within the tower.

The primary palette of high-performance glass and metal is employed for the exterior design of the building. Floor-to-ceiling glass maximizes views and ambient light, as well landscaped roofs and interior atriums for both their visual and energy benefits. The design promotes material and façade approaches that are integral to the performance of the building systems, not decorative. Above all, the architectural “skin” seeks to positively impact the pedestrian scale through transparency and texture, while minimizing the project’s environmental footprint.

The project is currently finishing design and is scheduled for completion in 2015.

Goettsch Partners is a Chicago-based architecture firm providing innovative architectural, interior, planning and building enclosure design services. With additional offices in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, the firm’s work spans four continents. Recently completed projects include premier office towers in Beijing, Chicago and Shanghai, and luxury business hotels in China, India and the United States. Select current projects include the new Chicago office of international law firm Baker & McKenzie; the North American headquarters of pharmaceutical company Astellas in Glenview, Illinois; Northwestern University’s new signature music building in Evanston, Illinois; China’s Grand Hyatt Chengdu at Chicony Plaza, which integrates a 450-key hotel and one of the country’s largest department stores; a 900-room Hilton hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and a 3 million-square-foot office development in Abu Dhabi that features the headquarters building of the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange.

Not necessarily an absolute wowzer (compared to the likes of ST and some other projects in China) but generally a very nice design.
