Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Richard Paul, Partner - Ningbo Gateway, 2009 - 2018
Located on the banks of Hangzhou Bay, two stepped towers mark the southwest corner of the Chinese city of Ningbo’s newest district, created as part of a 2008 masterplan. The pair of 152-metre- (500-foot-) high residential towers straddle the entrance to the bay.
Each building comprises 150 units, ranging in size from one to six bedrooms, and includes penthouses, duplexes and maisonettes. A double-height entrance to the first tower links the apartments with a health club and spa located in an adjoining pavilion. At ground level, a new south-facing quayside has been created as a focus for residents and visitors.
