Aedas integrates corner office gardens into its golden union park in shanghai

the design team at Aedas presents the master plan of its golden union park, to be realized in shanghai. the multi-use project will maximize accessibility and connectivity with 24-hour walkways and circulation within and outside the site in the chinese city. the assemblage of new buildings will be linked by centralized elevated walkway, lush with plant life. Aedas global design principal david clayton explains: ‘we place the taller office towers in the north as the backdrop of the development, overlooking the low-rise building blocks, each designed with their own courtyard that connects to the spine of the central walkway.’

designing its golden union park in shanghai, the team at Aedas shows influence from the origami cut-and-fold technique. the design uses intersecting lines to shape the landscape and walkways that run through the campus of office buildings. the intersecting points become key spaces for programs, while the central green axis links the interior and exterior spaces visually, enhancing the integrity of the design. the cut and fold design sculpts negative spaces for balconies and stepping terraces that function as social hubs within the office while visitors could explore the many activities scattered through the multilevel walkway.

seeking to introduce green landscaping into the offices at golden union park, Aedas integrates a green atrium along the south corner of each building. here, social gathering spaces are carved out to encourage communication, and positive, laidback collaboration. this vertical element of greenery draws the gaze move fluidly upwards through atriums and balconies. the design includes rooftop gardens and internal courtyards that are semi-enclosed, idyllic spaces, featuring an amphitheatre which can be used to host activities such as seminars, press conferences, training and tech exhibitions.

Aedas identifies different functional space without compromising the overall character of its golden union park. the design applies distinctive facade treatment to office blocks, each with its own elevation, material and color palette, which produces a unique, coherent language that celebrates the individuality of each tower.
