schmidt hammer lassen architects designs new cultural home for Chinese Labour Union
May 16, 2014

schmidt hammer lassen The Home of Staff Ningbo Labour Unionschmidt hammer lassen architects has completed the design for a unique new cultural home for the city Labour Union in Ningbo, China. The 100,000 square metre project, known as the Home of Staff, was won by schmidt hammer lassen architects in an international competition in 2013. With an eclectic mix of functions, split across two separate buildings, the project is linked by a landscape park stretching over half a kilometre. The Home of Staff provides support, health, education, culture and leisure facilities for almost 3 million Ningbo Labour Union members.
The Ningbo Labour Union has named the project the Home of Staff as they see it as a second home for the members they represent. The project sits at the centre of Ningbo New East Town on the edge of a new ecological wetland area forming the new cultural hub of the city, including the New Ningbo Library, also designed by schmidt hammer lassen architects.
“We have designed the Home of Staff as a series of stepped building volumes that are linked by a landscape that rises from a central public park to become a series of accessible green roof terraces”, explains Morten Schmidt, founding partner at schmidt hammer lassen architects. “The volumes, which from the air appear like a pixelated image, rise up at each end and form two individual buildings that are connected by a sunken walkway and a series of park pavilions.”
