The Ningbo R&D Park is located in the Ningbo High-tech Zone, which is a large research base providing offices, research and development facilities for new high-tech enterprises. With Juxian Road on the west, Jiangnan Road and Yongxin River on the north, this project are planned to be implemented in three phases.
A strictly symmetric layout is applied in Phase 1 planning which alternates courtyards with buildings. In Phase 2, the site is divided into four clusters by two crossed axes - the east-west main axis and the north-south secondary axis. Each cluster has a landscaped courtyard surrounded by buildings. In order to meet the high FSR requirement and avoid view- blocking, in general the buildings on the east side are higher than those on the west side and the buildings on the outside are higher than the ones close to the center. This design actually creates a warm and pleasant working space. In phase 3, we try to find inspiration from the complicated surrounding environment. We sort out three dominating axes which cross each other at the center of the site. The north-south axis echoes the tallest building on the south in Phase 1; the east-west axis echoes the 24-storeyed Microsoft Technology Center on the west side, and the secondary diagonal axis matches the Jiangnan Road.
The axes in three phases have different approaches but they are related and integrated in terms of space. They play a major role in shaping up various but harmonious and unified high-end office clusters.
In the design of individual buildings, we adopt classically styled stone curtain wall in Phase 1 and Phase 2, and full glass curtain wall in Phase 3 with harmonious proportion and delicate lines in details.
