A Focal Point for Qianjiang
New City

Ping An Hangzhou Finance Center
Hangzhou, China

The Ping An Finance Center is a mixed-use office development that will be a focal point for the emerging Qianjiang New City district in Hangzhou, a city known for its natural beauty and elegant urban scale.

Three mid- and high-rise towers gradually rise through the site at a 45-degree rotating layout, creating a richness and depth for the tower grouping. This orientation maximizes views for each tower of Hangzhou’s skyline and the Qianjiang River. The chamfering and folding treatment of each tower’s edge bring clarity and continuity to the tower group.

On the modern curtain wall facade, carefully proportioned panels and mullion details emphasize the building’s vertical expression. The result is a simple, uplifting image of the archetypal contemporary office tower.

A three-level podium along the main thoroughfare maximizes retail and commercial value. Internally, a central courtyard enclosed by the three towers provides a gathering place for users of the towers.
