Entry Description
Located in the heart of the New Bund,the project consists of six office towers 80 to 120 meters tall and six residential towers situated on the southern-most parcel.
The notches at the top of each office building are illuminated elaborately by 6-8 sets of high-power flood lights with different beam angles.The crystalline podiums with white translucent curtain walls, more than 15 meters high,are brightened by the ultra-narrow angle linear wall washer which hidden in the troughs at the bottom.Some linear wall washers are installed parallel to the ground, the others are customed with chips specifically designed to achieve the same uplighting effects when installed at a certain tilt angle,following the bottom line of the podiums.At the same time,the triangular lighting slots integrated with the curtain wall conceals a group of small spotlights which light up the small notches at the bottom, echoing the top of the towers.Sequenced high-quality downlights provide functional lighting for office canopies and bridges.In the lobby on the first floor of the office, spotlights and wall-washing lights arranged in the rear are precisely calculated to create crystal clear interior spaces
