SPARK’s Gateway One, Shenzhen opens for business

SPARK has completed the design of Gateway One a 71,600-square-metre mixed-use development and transportation hub for China Merchants. Located in Shenzhen South China the 110-metre-high, 27-storey office tower and five retail pavilions are connected by landscaped terraces that combine to create a unique naturally ventilated retail and business destination for the lively Skekou district of the city. The buildings sit over and adjacent to a new transportion hub that includes a bus terminal and the Seaworld subway station.

Gateway One is located at the southern tip of Shenzhen on the Nantou Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by water on three sides, Shekou wraps around the verdant Danan and Xiaonan mountains. The relationship between the dramatic subtropical coastline and its history of human intervention that generated the inspiration for SPARK’s design.

The architecture, landscape and interior design of the Gateway One Development were all designed by SPARK, the design language and motifs used are consistent providing Gateway One with a distinctive urban-garden identity.
