Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) will design four new interconnected headquarters buildings, commissioned by Chinese smartphone maker OPPO. The project, located in Shenzhen, is 200 meters (656 feet) high and includes flexible connectivity of two 20-story vertical halls, an open space tower, and two external service towers with vertical circulation.

Construction of the new 18.5 square meters (approximately 2 million square feet) of a new modular modular skyscraper building will begin this year and will be completed in 2025.
The tower is designed to maximize the landscape of Shenzhen Bay, which gradually shrinks inward in the lower positions, creating larger municipal spaces on the streets.
In addition to the tower, OPPO’s new headquarters will house a landscaped square, an art gallery, shops and a restaurant.
Sky Plaza on the 10th floor includes leisure and entertainment facilities, and Sky Lab on the roof will also be open to public viewing and has a metro network directly connected to Shenzhen.
Just like THE RecentLy Completed Leeza Soho project by ZHA, OPPO’s new headquarters building in Shenzhen also hopes to receive the LEED Gold Award (Green Building Standards) certification.
Although still in its early stages, there is not enough information, but at least we know that LEED certification requires maximizing the use of natural light and installing an energy management system.
In the international architectural competition, there are also industry-leading names such as Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Rogers Stirk Harbor and Partners, Henning Larsen Architects and Bjarke Ingels Group Word.
OpPO’s new headquarters building in Shenzhen will begin construction sometime this year and, if all goes well, is expected to be officially completed in 2025.
