Shenyang International New Town

Shenyang, China
Shenyang Sunshine 100
Project 2004 – 2008

A multi-unit residential development of 4,600 apartments along the Hun River in Shenyang International New Town.

The development which also includes retail and recreational facilities, was constructed in multiple stages.  Stage one included nine towers and 17 slab blocks on a development area of 240,000m².  Stage two included five towers and four slab blocks on an area of 200,000m² while further stages envisage a 200 metre high tower.

Strong colour on simple clean forms imparts identity to individual blocks.  Vibrant staggered grids screen the exterior solidity of the taller towers.  The towers are distinguished by randomly stacked frames producing a three dimensional reading to the façades.
