YANCHENG - THREE TOWERS THAT FOLLOW THE SUN

Baumschlager Eberle Architekten as Architects

A new experience - our largest housing project to date
YANCHENG - THREE TOWERS THAT FOLLOW THE SUN
The city north of Shanghai, is experiencing strong growth and a property boom. The client’s instructions (CEG, China Eagel Group)) to Baumschlager Eberle Architekten were clear: to provide the very highest standards of architecture and interior design. Equally important in satisfying the expectations of potential buyers was the need for all 560 apartments to have a southern aspect.

The architects’ response, recently completed. was a striking development comprising three residential towers, 120,000m2 of living space and infrastructure. In stark contrast to the serried ranks of apartment blocks omnipresent in China, the design features three different, highly sculptural towers disposed to follow the sun so to guarantee optimum light exposure. Kaiyuan Street is the largest residential development to be designed by Baumschlager Eberle Architekten in China.

“It’s an exceptional residential project for China. One in which nature, light and view all have an important role to play,” explains Hugo Herrera Pianno, project manager of our Lustenau office.
