Super Villa—President Mansion In The Air by Cheng Chung Design

Wuhan Greenland Center is a super-tall landmark skyscraper in Wuhan city of China. With a height of 636 meters, it was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, an American design team which has designed several world famous super-tall buildings, such as the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, etc. Arrival lobby on the first floor, the sky lobby on the 66th floor, the executive lounge and the multi-function hall, as well as the reception area on 11th floor and the President Mansion's interior design of the 76-85 floors were completed by CCD/Cheng Chung Design (HK). This project is located in the core area of the Binjiang business district of Wuchang, and it will become a super high-rise urban complex which integrates super five-star hotels, high-end shopping malls, top-grade office buildings and apartments.

Reception Area on the 11F

Following the interior design concept of the whole project, "pavilions and corridors" with modern building shapes were created as the design ideal.

Designers set an independent reception space at the front entrance, and transferred the passages to show flats into pavilions and corridors, along which the ancient bamboo paths were reconstructed through artworks and small landscape installations. The paths guide the guests to enter inside slowly, just like in ancient times that when guests came to visit, the master would lead them walk through 3 yards before enter
