Retail Architect | Towers Mixed-Use

Tanggu City is located in the heart of China’s Bin Hai new area, and the Tanggu Towers Mixed-use project is to be located in the heart of Tanggu. The site, a solid city block, is surrounded by a cacophony of buildings, signs and shops, each calling louder then the next for attention. The architecture is loud, the colors are loud, the lighting screams louder yet.

In locations like this, the best way to call attention to oneself is to set oneself apart from the noise, to be the calm in the midst of the frenzy. GDW’s design for the Tanggu Towers creates a facade of quiet sophistication, a radical departure from the surroundings, a project that vehemently sets itself apart by providing a place of quiet for the eyes of every person on the street. It’s towers, one a hotel, another serviced apartments and six others residential, are generally teutonic and rigid, though bits of whimsy at times interrupts their cartesian formality.

Inside the project, however, is an energetic heart that magically contrasts with reserve of its exterior. A retail street, entered by passing between the twin towers that line the main street, cascades down several levels, maximizes the value of the land while maintaining an above ground feel.

Tanggu Towers, a calmly sophisticated facade with a vibrant, beating heart at its core.
