New York-based Steve Holl Architects have recently released design plans for new headquarters for genome machine intelligence company iCarbonX (Shenzhen, China).

Holl's design, mirroring the study of genes, DNA and carbon bonds through architecture, was chosen through a competition issued by ICX.

The Design

Made up of two towers, Body A is slated to be a residential tower, while Body B is to host offices, laboratories and public reception spaces. The towers will also house a sky lounge, gym, restaurant, sky atrium, health club, educational spaces and a business club.

New York-based Steve Holl Architects have recently released design plans for new headquarters for genome machine intelligence company iCarbonX (Shenzhen, China).

Pulling inspiration from carbon bonds, the design will also connect the two towers with four different green bridges made up of native tropical plants, creating a diversity of spaces.

The upper two bridges are to connect a circuit of health and nutrition-based cafes as well as a gym and swimming pool, while the lower two bridges will connect more public outreach spaces, meeting areas, galleries and a clinic.

ICX’s clinic is to be the central element that will anchor both the living and working towers, making a physical mission of applying science to daily life.

On the ground level, Holl also plans to create a series of water gardens and a central recycled-water “Pool of Knowledge” using curvilinear geometry. The podium-level garden will be partially embedded in the ground and will use continuous circulated water to mask the sounds of the city, creating a sense of calm.

The new ICX headquarters towers are still in the design process but are expected to break ground in fall 2019.
