The area of Yuyao Plastic City is specialized in the trade and production of plastic parts. These products are required to be exihibed and retailed in the new market hall. Furtermore, the region of Yuyao is home to an exceptionally picturesque mountainous landscape, represented by the “mountain peach“ as the floral emblem of the city.

The design for the new building is based on a dual concept: a flat three-storey building forms a fascianting contrast against a 150m high office tower.

The market hall can be devided into 624 retail tennancies. The building‘s centre forms a vast naturally lit hall with special functions such as restaurants, exhibitions, meeting rooms etc., complete with plantings, the oval shaped inner atrium‘s will complete a high quality space. The cut-out shapes crete voids that direct the form of the new office high-rise building. The tower‘s placement in an urban public space necessitates an entrance hall in which to bridge the built an urban spaces.

Under each of the buildings, facilities for one or two-storey underground garages provide parking space for circa 620 cars.
