The Alibaba Headquarters in Hangzhou establishes new international workplace standards in China, providing 150,000 square metres of flexible open-plan office space within a campus style layout.

The dynamic campus accommodates approximately 9,000 Alibaba employees and is arranged around a central open space or ‘common’ surrounded by a cluster of buildings or ‘neighbourhoods’ that vary in height from four to seven storeys.

Based on the concepts of connectivity, clarity and community, the master plan for the Headquarters was developed collaboratively by a multidisciplinary team including HASSELL architects, interior designers and landscape architects. The flexible, open-plan workplace has been designed to encourage informal and creative meetings throughout the complex.

Hubs, internal and external streets, bridges, roof terraces and strategically placed destination points contribute to the collaborative nature of the workplace. Buildings and floorplates have been arranged and the facade has been designed to maximise access to natural light and air flow to all workstations.

The Hangzhou context has been embraced with garden networks and sunshading screens that represent Chinese ice-pattern window screens which are prominent throughout the city’s renowned historical gardens.
