Hangzhou Alibaba DAMO Nanhu Industry Park

Hangzhou Alibaba DAMO Nanhu Industry Park integrates the state-of-the-art office, tech laboratory, visitor center, creating a world-class research workplace in Hangzhou. Designed by Aedas, the park is completed. 

     The park occupied a land of 228,100 sq m, sits in the centre of Nanhu Science City abounded with landscape resources and lush vegetation. It resembles as a Bodhi leaf, emulating leaf veins to create open courtyards and view corridors.
     The design is tilted towards the east to create a cascading courtyard buildings. The finger-shaped office buildings are set in parallel with the view corridor while canteen and public amenities are sensibly placed in the centre of the campus on the north-south central axis for easy access. A serene yet dynamic environment is created through the integration of landscape and architecture.

The office buildings adopts a column-grid structure with flexible and modulated layout, integrating office, conference space. In order to maximise flexibility, modular office blocks could be linked to create workplace between 500 sq m to 4,000 sq m.
    Courtyards, gardens and public plazas are embedded in-between buildings for relaxation and activities, portraying a space in which elements in nature flourish in a symbiotic relationship. The elegant office building form are encased in a glass curtain wall that are ‘jagged’ to maximise privacy between buildings. (Source: Aedas)
