The 340,000 square meters Tencent Binhai Building, the new Tencent headquarters in Nanshan District, Shenzhen, has become a landmark in Shenzhen.

The design concept of Tencent Binhai Tower is “Internet of Everything”. This “interconnected building” symbolically expresses the interconnection of various remote corners due to their characteristics, and connects employees more effectively than traditional high-rise buildings.
Viewed from Binhai Avenue, the two super-high-rise towers enrich the urban boundary through the “entanglement” and “twisting” of the connecting floors. At the same time, they open their arms to the world like an “information giant”, welcoming visitors to Shenzhen and the High-tech Park.
The building has a unique architectural skin system. Among them, the originality is the south facade of the South Tower. As a unit curtain wall across floors, the appearance is vertically zigzag, and some inwardly inclined modules are interspersed in disorder. By modifying the concept of standard combined curtain wall panels, the building skin forms a textured or articulated skin layer. The different geometric shapes created by a single panel are combined into a larger pattern texture.
“Connected Building” defines the relationship between enterprises, industrial parks, and future cities. The north and south towers form a gateway that conforms to the scale of the city, while the elevated low-zone connecting layer becomes a gate that conforms to the pedestrian scale, welcoming every guest. It embodies the global demeanor and responsibility of Internet companies. The clean and powerful spatial composition and creative appearance reflect China’s science and technology culture and popular culture.

The modern and ergonomic building is not only a living space, but also a social place. Such a diverse and vibrant office environment is in line with their way of life and social interaction. These public spaces are the main places for the employees of the two towers to socialize and interact. They are also a place to cultivate the spirit of collaboration, sparks and inspiration.
The center of the lobby is a magnificent 5-storey open space, where as long as you look up, you can clearly see the giant connecting floor through the glass ceiling. The design concept of the “interconnected building” is clear at a glance. Various auxiliary spaces also continue the high-level design level, the space is full of light, transparent and bright.
The design of the middle connection layer is mainly based on the theme of health, including sports, social, medical and conference facilities. It ensures that people can also engage in social activities while exercising, and promote the physical and mental health of employees.
The courtyard of the health chain adopts a cliff-like design, and introduces fresh air and natural light into the room through centralized skylights. The highlight of the courtyard is a 4-story climbing wall and an athletic track that surrounds the floors. In addition, this connecting floor also has a large gym with panoramic outdoor views, a table tennis activity room, and various activity rooms.
The “Knowledge Chain” space consists of 4 floors and provides a space for employees to share and communicate knowledge. “Tencent Academy” is arranged around the courtyard with natural light. Indoor green plants are also introduced at the bottom of the courtyard, which not only plays a role in purifying the air, but also provides an “oasis” for employees who use computers and mobile phones for a long time to relax.
The design of various auxiliary function spaces fully considers ergonomics and takes into account various needs to bring employees a comfortable working experience.
