The new NDB headquarters integrates modernity and innovation with cultural tradition in order to create a classical yet exemplary headquarters design for the surrounding area. In the current globalized world, we believe finding personalized solutions to unique problems are of high pertinence and value.
Sustainability played a key role in this project and was found by using an innovative solution where based on the yearly solar data, facade height and rotation of the tower a more open or closed panels would be chosen. This resulted in a gradient facade that provided shade from the sun while opening to key viewpoints in Shanghai.
