Vanke Qingdao Business Park, China
Qingdao Vanke Business Park located in Chengyang District has been developed by Vanke as a hub for innovative businesses. The park’s latest addition is a colourful stepped mixed-use complex designed by CLOU.
Accommodating a bookstore, a small city hall and retail spaces provide exciting meeting places for cross-cultural communications. The design reflects CLOU’s ongoing exploration of stepped architecture and office and commercial design integration.
Sculpted Architecture with Stepped Terraces
The design responds to the predominately small and medium-sized companies and young creative retailers in the office park. Opening what would traditionally be a closed building, the architects created exciting paths of exploration and vibrant social spaces.
CLOU has carved the 10,000 sqm massing into a sculptural form with stepped terraces for a proposal that shifts character from different viewpoints.
The human-scale terraces become an extension of the office areas. Varying semi-private spaces are curated into a series of vertical landscapes with the flexibility to host creative outdoor events.
The volumetric form resembles stepped boxes paired with geometric windows and expresses a rational beauty. The façade design plays with shades of pinks and silver, which, from a distance, creates a luminous effect that animates as one approach.
