Guiyang Wanda Super High-rise Complex
Also known as “Zhu”, Guiyang is the capital of Guizhou Province. It is a major central city in Southwest China that serves as a transportation and communication hub, industrial base, and business and tourism service center. Guiyang boasts a pleasant climate and is known as the “dynamic city of mountains and waters”. The National Big Data Center settled in Guizhou, laying a technical foundation for the development of smart city and smart building technology in Guiyang.
In 2019, Guiyang officially started promoting itself as a “consumer paradise” by introducing high-end consumer brands such as Galeries Lafayette and cultivating high-end consumption. It’s in this favorable context that the super six-star hotel brand of Wanda Group, Wanda Reign, joined hands with SKP to enter Guiyang.
The project site is located at the intersection between Renmin Avenue and Huanchen Road (N) in Yunyan District, which is a well-developed area in Guiyang with convenient transportation and excellent supporting facilities. Close to Qianling Park, the region enjoys a wonderful natural landscape dominated by Qianling Mountain, the most famous mountain in the south of Guizhou. A tower is to rise in this setting, hosting high-end businesses, 5A class office spaces, and a six-star hotel by Wanda Reign. RhineScheme proposed two schemes for the facade design, taking into consideration overall aesthetics and economic benefits.
High-end business + 5A office + six-star hotel model:
With a total height of 300 meters, this super high-rise building with flexible facade modeling will become the highest one in the old town. However, the large office area will add some pressure on the future operation.
Guizhou is one of the main growing areas of orchids in China, and the orchid is the official city flower of Guiyang. Orchids are not blooming together with other flowers. The facade scheme shows the graceful lines of orchids and the natural upward growth posture. Seen from the main line, the building is like an elegant orchid, stretching smoothly and standing gracefully. The top of the building is shaped by orchid petals, and the center is like a blooming stamen. Integrated with the lighting design at night, the building outshines others on the top of Guiyang.
When it comes to Guiyang, green mountains and beautiful water are the necessary theme. Unlike ordinary streams, waterfalls pour down from high mountains and stand out from others. The streamline of the building facade is like rushing water of waterfalls, pouring down from a high source. The top floor of the 300-meter building is the lobby bar of Wanda Reign, which is more in line with the concept of “the top of the mountain, the source of water”. Shining brightly over the city, it is just like the crown of the city.
