Being the tallest structure rising above the leafy streets of Shekou the 220m tower is visible from as far as Hong Kong.

The Shenzhen Shuiwan 1979 complex is nestled between a network of tree-lined streets and directly connects to the Shuiwan subway station.

The project attained its name from its site where, in 1979, Deng Xiaoping announced the opening up of China. Today fashionable renovated factories stand side by side operational factories, old residential neighbourhoods, banking headquarters and a theme park.

The tower is designed as stack of small interlocked boxes relating to the scale and diversity of today’s Shekou. Gaps between the boxes are filled with green terraces and public space rising up from a raised retail podium’s roof landscape. Halfway up the tower, between offices below and residences above, cantilevering terraces invite the neighbourhood to its restaurants, a swimming pool, and an art gallery.

作为蛇口最高的建筑,220米高的水湾1979是城市天际线中的亮眼一笔,从香港望过来依然可以得见。

深圳水湾1979是一座220米高的综合塔楼,坐落于蛇口南山绿树如茵的街区,与太子路上的水湾站地铁相连。

项目的名字致敬了邓小平1979年提出的改革开放政策。如今,蛇口地区由工厂改造而成的艺术空间鳞次栉比,与仍旧运作的现存工厂、老住宅区、银行总部、主题公园,共同形成区域的独特风貌。

塔楼被设计成相互咬合叠加的小体块,呼应当今蛇口的尺度与多样性。体块间的缝隙设置绿色平台,抬升的商业裙房景观屋面形成公共空间。塔楼中部在办公、公寓之间的悬挑平台包含餐厅、游泳池以及小型艺术中心,吸引人群到此从高处俯瞰城市的壮观美景。
