Gmond International Building
Gmond International Building is a representative regeneration project of the old town in Shenzhen. The project consists of three main functions including the headquarters for Tellus-Gmond, Grade-5A lettable office spaces and a jewellery trading center. The well-facilitated transport hub brings enormous circulation to the complex generating excellent development potentials.
The architectural form of the 200-metre super high-rise drew inspiration from the Chinese traditional totem of ‘bamboo’ which symbolizes prosperity and moral high ground. The ascending podium massing recaptures a growing bamboo, featuring exterior landscaped staircases, public platforms, eco-friendly rooftop gardens and an art center as a jewellery exhibition venue.
The podium façade expresses as large bamboo leaves to enclose the commercial component forming an interesting duet with the blooming tower.
