Located in the heart of the Greater Bay Area, the rapid urban development of Panyu has significantly facilitated the development of Guangzhou. Recently, Aedas has won China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) South China Headquarters Building Design Competition, lighting up the skyline in Panyu CBD.

The headquarters building comprises of a retail podium and two office towers of 250m and 200m tall, providing 240,000 sq m office space and 23,000 sq m retail space to the region. Two office towers are in diagonally opposite corners, sitting on the retail podiums divided by a public passage.

Inspired by the double-railway physical form and Guangzhou Lotus Hill topology, the façade integrates those characteristics and creates a sinuous organic pattern. The office tower design provides efficient floor plans and maximises the use of space. A sky lounge located on transfer lobby floor provides unique leisure experience and splendid cityscape views, complementing with high-quality amenities as in clubhouse and swimming pool. A double-height atrium redefines the class of modern office, creating a contemporary and interactive workplace.

The design creates a vibrant living atmosphere by integrating greening features and outdoor space onto the retail podium. A visual corridor that connects the entrance plaza and metro station along with the outdoor decks and roof gardens will make it a natural workplace promoting work-life balance.

The CRCC South China Headquarters Building is to become a new high-end commercial destination in Panyu, strengthening the development of Guangzhou with high-end office spaces and interconnected retail components.
