Competition win for Aedas Shenzhen office

Aedas as Master Planner and Architectural Concept Designer

Aedas’ Shenzhen team has won a competition to design the Hengqin Science City Phase II Plot 2. Situated in the High-tech Industrial Zone in Hengqin Science City, the site is dedicated to the bio-medical industry, data centres and auxiliary facilities which is designed to be an innovative live-work-recreate community surrounded by green belts and parks.


The project consists of eleven towers with offices, research and incubation centres, laboratories, data centres, residential apartments, exhibition spaces, retail and leisure facilities. The design grows from a ‘seed’ exhibition gallery sited on the west of the plot which is a gateway to the project. Data centres are strategically placed towards the north and close to the artificial intelligence and tech innovation district; while the bio-medical related facilities on the west are adjacent to the Chinese medicine research area. Residential towers are sited near the school.


The ‘seed’ grows and expands throughout the site along a green corridor with retail, leisure, lifestyle and exhibition facilities. Parks and rooftop gardens on the corridor facilitate green living.


All building heights are carefully planned and arranged to create a beautiful skyline and maximise view. All the buildings enjoy excellent daylight and spatial layouts. The façade design is inspired by the veins of leaves, which also look like a digital matrix. This theme continues throughout the development to create a coherent style. Multi-level connections are designed to enhance connectivity and enhance circulation.
