LATITUDE’s Mixed-use towers will revitalize the East area of the Taiyuan river into a new commercial and residential center.

These two towers are a new 40-and-23-storey high-rise complex located on the West bank of the river in Taiyuan. The office tower -the highest- has been carefully carved to introduce a new perspective from the street, and that at the same time, avoids the standard tower’s full height.

The boutique hotel tower – the smallest- is excavated in its curtain wall to reveal the inner life of the building. This creates a profile for Taiyuan skyline while generating a set of specific features -indoor/outdoor spaces with plunge pools and terraces. The horizontal element which links both towers is a covered plaza which accommodates an extensive mix of dining and leisure facilities.

The design dismantles the typical tower and podium typology, creating not a tower in isolation but instead a skyscraper that melds with the city.

纬度建筑设计的综合体高塔将振兴太原市内河东部的商业发展,加速商业区域与住宅区的落成。

这两座分别为40层和23层的高层塔楼位于太原市汾河西安。经过精心的考究与雕琢,这座较高办公楼的延伸部位将人们的视线带到街景,同时视觉上巧妙地压低其建筑真实高度。较小的一座塔楼表面精细的设计使得塔楼内部空间彰显活力。这个设计理念不仅为太原市增添了另一缕天际线,同时露台与游泳池的应用为户内外增添了一系列特征。连接双塔的横向元素(广场的覆盖区域)为混合应用区,它也是能容纳休闲广场、展厅、餐饮等多功能广场。

本设计摒弃典型的高层塔楼模式,以融合与城市的摩天楼替代孤立的高塔。
