Goettsch Eco Tower Wins Soochows Competition

Goettsch Partners has won the international design competition to pen the new Chinese headquarters for Soochow Securities in the Chinese city of Suzhou.

The 41,000 square metre building not only contains 32,000 square metres of offices for Soochow but also 8,000 square metres of trading floors for the company to operate and underground parking for 400 cars and 800 bicycles.

Rising to 21 storeys, the building is located in the rapidly growing satellite business district of Suzhou, the Suzhou Industrial Park that takes advantage of its central road connections right into the city centre. Building on this strategic location, Goettsch Partners has designed the building to act as a gateway along this boulevard.

With a roughly triangular curved floorplate, the scheme is dominated by a central atrium that runs up the entirety of the inside of the building with the three edges of the tower arranged around it offering the office accommodation and easy access to miniature winter gardens on each level.
The atrium has been designed partly to help ventilate the building by allowing the warm air to circulate out of the offices and up the tower.

The full height floor to ceiling glazing has been designed to provide passive solar shading whilst also allowing the tenants of the building to enjoy unobstructed views from within.

Adding further eco-friendly features are rainwater collection on the roof, combined heat pumps underground contributing to the buildings energy generation, a system to recycle some of the water, and a cool roof on the podium area that uses grass and other greenery to keep its temperature down.
