commissioned by the huafa group, RMJM has drawn inspiration from chinese town zhuhai’s unique rock formations, taking advantage of the surrounding southern and eastern views. occupying a coastal site of 26.96 hectares, the st. regis hotel and office tower has already been recognized by the zhuhai government as the tallest building in the city, with the tip towering 328.8 meters above the ground.

local government has hailed the tower as ‘china’s new architectural landmark’, celebrating its size, environmentally-friendly credentials, and plush exterior design, along with the building’s scenic connotations. RMJM’s project is a 68-story skyscraper with subtle curving lines, and a 32nd tallest building in china.

 

 

another project of RMJM rests right next to the skyscraper — ‘zhuhai shizimen’ business cluster contrasts the strict glass tower with its futuristic, curved, white shape. apart from these two buildings, the architects boast multiple realized designs scattered around the city.
