Eco Office Park
Eco Office Park is a mini garden city, a sustainable, inspiring, self-containing community in harmony with nature. The design reflects Wei Yang &Partners’ passion and holistic approach towards a low carbon future.
The project is a pivotal element of a new garden city master planned by WYP in Central China. Situated in a picturesque setting just outside the historic old town of Lixian, the development is a key driver to attract investments and stimulate the local economy. It also aims to promote the new trend of life-work balanced lifestyle, in order to foster the next generation of entrepreneurs, in particular, the young locals.
WYP’s concept is to create a campus style community in harmony with surrounding nature. Its highly efficient layout maximises potentials of the site, with low-rise office buildings arranged around a landscaped central boulevard, which leads to a service core of multi-functional community hub, canteen, apartments, as well as conference and indoor sports facilities. Public transit, cycling and walking are encouraged and well facilitated, while limited car parking spaces are kept underneath each building to create a safe and pleasant car-free public realm. Green spaces are sensitively laid out at different levels to create micro eco-systems, which supply fresh air, cultivate thoughts and offer each window a garden view. Sustainable design principles are systematically adopted throughout to minimise environmental impacts and reduce whole-life cost, while the essence of vernacular architecture is also reflected in modern design.
