Construction work is underway on an eye-catching new skyscraper in Shenzhen in China. Designed by NBBJ, the 32-story building will serve as a new headquarters for technology firm and smartphone maker Vivo, and will feature multiple levels of garden terraces on its exterior. The project will rise to a total height of 150 meters. Its facade will be broken up by garden terraces hosting different types of plants and trees, reflecting the flora of different areas of southeast China. The interior will be mostly taken up by office space, with a public plaza and retail areas on the ground floor, and a flagship Vivo store on the fifth floor. Elsewhere will be restaurants, conference levels, and an employee cafeteria. The uppermost floors will host event spaces and more conference rooms boasting choice views of the area.

The project is slated to receive WELL and LEED Gold certification and its overall form is designed to both maximize natural light inside and provide shading where required. Rainwater will be captured in tanks for reuse and landscaping will be designed to mitigate the risk of flooding.

Construction is already underway and the project is due to be completed in 2025. We’ve seen a bunch of towers integrating greenery going ahead of late, with Heatherwick Studio’s Eden and UNStudio’s Southbank by Beulah two recent examples.
