Zoomlion Headquarters in Changsha
17 May 2022
Location: Changsha, Hunan Province, south central China
Zoomlion Headquarters, China
The HENN-designed Zoomlion Headquarters is the heart of the new Smart Industry City, scheduled for completion in 2023. The new industrial park will drive innovation in the field of construction engineering and usher in a new era of intelligent, digital and green construction.
The 309,000 sqm Zoomlion Headquarters will house offices, the Zoomlion Museum, a data center, a canteen, training and research areas, and sports facilities. HENN’s geometric design balances the client’s production needs with a sensitivity to its rural context; the Headquarters blends into the hilly and densely wooded Changsha green-corridor. Made from white concrete, the classic architectural plinth becomes a faceted landscape of walkable green slopes and staircases.
This new ground plane traverses an irregularly sloped site and spans a busy motorway to create seamless connections between the north and south sides of the site. The angular main building is wrapped in transparent floor-to-ceiling glass and cantilevers twelve meters over the site, appearing to float above the folded stone landscape.
The Headquarters’ interior is spacious and brightly lit; its Z-shaped atrium serves as both an exhibition space and a gathering space for employees. The depth and patterning of the coffered ceiling is informed by intensive solar analysis and echoes the design’s angular geometry.
The Zoomlion Headquarters is a notable addition to HENN’s portfolio of iconic company headquarters including Osram HQ, Google Office and Zalando Campus, which will be completed later this year. HENN’s Beijing office is also overseeing the upcoming completion of Westlake University in Hangzhou and the IHM Innovation Center in Guangzhou.
