Gree Electric Appliances, Inc. is a world-class leader in China's smart manufacturing industry. This 200-meter-high global center will be completed in 2023, which can accommodate the group's major sectors covering the entire industrial chain and become a low-carbon ecological innovation space.


Tree Tower

The surrounding buildings are dense, and the land is long and narrow. The height of the building is limited, and there are many vertical tall buildings around. The traditional mid-tube tower can neither meet the needs of highly-positioned companies for multiple displays, nor can it achieve the openness of urban public spaces. We use a modular space system to decompose the vertical tower into 9 modules and shape the main body of the building with a tree structure. Facing the marine park on the north side and the high-rise buildings on the south side, the shape of the building gradually retreats, thereby releasing more open top space and landscape views.


Void Core

The center of the building adopts a transparent shared high and large space, and 9 space modules are arranged around the central shared three-dimensional hollow core, forming a breathing cross-sectional relationship. While realizing space diversification, it creates a three-dimensional aerial living room for the city and creates a vertical talent community. Furthermore, it provides staff with multi-purpose functions, such as communication, leisure, training, lecturing, and catering. At the same time, it is also an ecological garden, which attracts the public in the city to visit, study and relax with an open and welcoming attitude.


Bay Window

The whole building combines Gree Electric's advanced manufacturing technology and products. The interior of the building is dominated by the central exhibition hall, and the customized three-dimensional complex of various spaces provides a new platform and new space for the diversified development of Carbon neutral industry. The exterior of the building uses Gree Electric’s patented photovoltaic power generation curtain wall to achieve a zero-power energy-saving air-conditioning system and create an industrial highland that leads energy innovation.
