One of the largest suplliers of the escalator and elevator market globally wants to expand its focus by setting up a research center next to their factories in Ningbo, Zhejiang province.

Our client has obviously been contributing to skylines globally – the design for the research center is the ultomate possibility of giving them their own skyline.

The research center has a immensely diverse program, ranging from manufacturing and testing facilities to areas for clients and conferences. By introducing the testing tower to the program, we were able to push the skyline into a highrise.

The ‘towers’ that are part of the highrise have a rather small footprint – 18 x 18m. By combining these towers, we create a diverse and dynamic set of floors that allow for the variaty of programs to find a place.
