LYCS architecture has revealed plans to build the zhejiang printing group‘s new headquarters in the chinese city of hangzhou. situated between a residential community and an elevated highway, the building seeks to integrate itself within the existing urban fabric by providing access across the 120,000 square meter site. named ‘the corner of hangzhou’, the 100 meter-tall structure is compressed along a diagonal axis in order to minimize its impact on the surrounding neighborhood.

internally, a welcoming lobby is found at ground level, with natural light, ventilation and greenery introduced to the scheme’s public spaces. located at a height of 70 meters, the ‘sky lobby’ comprises an external garden, which offers users of the building fresh air and daylight throughout the day.
