The green oculus of the Shenzhen Qian Hai scheme represents a new typology that was designed for the
project’s geographical, climatic and cultural context.
.
To capitalize on the subtropical climate, the oculus is green and porous, offering users a biophilic, naturally ventilated, yet sheltered, environment.
.
It brings nature back into the lives of city-dwellers by offering landscaped, comfortable, breezy, naturally lit common spaces.
.
These spaces significantly reduce the need for artificial lighting and air-conditioning, which reduces the scheme’s energy consumption considerably.
.
The biophilic design offers a healthy and relaxing environment that encourages people to be more aware of our climate crisis and inspires them to form a closer relationship with nature.
.
Design Inception: 2018

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Lunar New Year from all of us at WOHA!
.
To mark the beginning of the Year of the Ox, our co-founding director Richard Hassell created this tessellation of beautiful Balinese cattle in an abstract rice field in this year’s lucky colours white, yellow and green.
.
The design is playing games with depth, patterns, space, figure and ground.
.
This year’s lucky numbers are 1 and 4 and any number containing 1 and 4 - this herd consists of 141 oxen. One For One also sounds auspicious in English - doubling up!
.
If you zoom in, you will see the oxen are surrounded by fellow creatures from the rice paddies: cattle egret, Javan finch, frogs and fish.
.
Can you spot them all?

This schematic design for a large mixed-use development in a prominent new site at the center of Shenzhen's Qian Hai Bay CBD envisions what future city centers could be.
.
Housing cultural spaces, expo and conference centers as well as hotels, residential units, retail and offices, the design takes a holistic approach by integrating the different programmes 3-dimensionally.
.
The cultural, expo and conference spaces are housed in crystal-like greenhouses at the foot of the green oasis. These spaces offer a natural, biophilic environment for a multitude of use cases and activities, regardless of seasons and weather conditions.
.

A lush, subtropical urban oasis rises up on the seafront,bringing nature back into the city that is dominated by concrete, glass and steel.
