bonC office building
The headquarters tower for BON Corporation has a prominent location in Hefei, on a main axis through a new central business district.
The 130-metre-high headquarters has a diagonally-braced structure and is characterized by a striking geometric form – the facade is pulled inwards near the base to form a V-shape across the south-facing elevation. The floor plates widen as the building rises, expanding to provide panoramic views of the surroundings. The design maximizes the available area within a compact rectilinear footprint, while respecting views of neighbouring structures. The tower will provide the highest quality office spaces.
Tiered sky-gardens line the perimeter of the upper floors and a generous winter garden with a mezzanine level accommodates VIP club and meeting spaces at the top of the building. The tower will be naturally ventilated for part of the year, grey water will be recycled and local materials utilized where possible to reduce embodied energy.
