Xian Lima Luxury City Masterplan

Architect: PTW Architects
Client: Shanxi Sunshine Group
Status: Under development

The project is a middle/upper class mixed-use residential estate that includes residential apartments, serviced apartments, office space and retail. The site is located on the eastern side of Changan Road, with a total site area of 2Ha and a building area of approximately 93,500sqm.

The design unifies the varied shape of the site and presents a unique image and building profile to the city beyond. The masterplan borrows from the traditions of Chinese royal architecture combined with international design and new materials and technologies. The result is a unique residential environment drawn together by the building forms and a series of diverse courtyards, landscaped with local plant material.

Guangzhou Convention and Exhibition Centre
Guangzhou - China

Architect: PTW Architects in association with WZMH Partnership.
Client: Guangzhou Planning Bureau.
Status: Unknown.

PTW Architects was part of a joint venture with WZMH Partnership for this invited competition to design the Guangzhou International Convention and Exhibition Centre on Pazhou Island.

The exhibition halls of 250,000m² are disposed on the Pearl River site so that the perimeter of the exhibition centre is always enlivened by the activities and movement of people. In this perimeter zone of foyers, restaurants, meeting rooms and outdoor exhibition areas, people may enjoy the views out to the Pearl River and surrounding parks.

The composition of primary functional areas clearly separates people and servicing. The simple, yet dramatic roof form above directly expresses the functional parameters and structural systems while evoking the large sheltering roof forms found in traditional southern Chinese architecture.

Ningbo Jiang Dong development project
Ningbo - China

SOM was charged with the completion of a master plan for the redevelopment of 22 hectares (55 acres) within the downtown core of Ningbo, in the People's Republic of China. The development plan proposed the connection of the new district to an existing riverfront park system and to a nearby temple, creating an uninterrupted green link that unites the district to other areas of the downtown. Encompassing 6 million square feet of development at a density of 3 Floor/area ratio, SOM's plan features a mix of uses centered around a dynamic new park. Residential, office and commercial functions are intermingled to create a vibrant new live-work environment. Anchoring the project are two landmark buildings: a 180 meter (500') office tower, and a civic building emphasizing media and entertainment uses. A sinuous pedestrian bridge, also designed by SOM, links the project with the commercial core of the city and unites two riverfront parks.
