After six years of construction that began in 2012, the development has been completed at a time when <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/10373/shenzhen" rel="nofollow" >Shenzhen</a> is continuously evolving into &ldquo;China's Silicon Valley&rdquo;.

A 220-meter tower and a 120-meter tower are linked by a 34-meter, ground-level podium that houses the main lobbies, conference center, cafeteria, and exhibition space. The Shenzhen Energy Company's offices are located on the highest floors, while the remaining floors are rentable office space.
No stacked blocks to be seen in this BIG design this time around either. The towers feature an undulating envelope that creates “a rippled skin around both towers and breaks away from the traditional glass curtain wall,” BIG says.

Designed by&nbsp;<a href="https://archinect.com/henninglarsen" rel="nofollow" >Henning Larsen Architects</a>&nbsp;Partner&nbsp;&Oacute;sbj&oslash;rn Jacobsen, who is Faroese, the 750m2 green-roofed town hall exhibits a contemporary approach to one major characteristic of traditional Faroese architecture: blurring the line between nature and building.
The town hall is one of the first new buildings aiming to bring public life back to the center of Norðragøta. The community used to gather at a local beach for special occasions before a major fishing factory moved into town.

To create a welcoming atmosphere, the building features public terraces and a green roof where people can have picnics or swim in the river, while the interior can accommodate exhibitions, talks, concerts, and other events. Artist Jens Ladekarl Thomsen also created an exterior light and sound installation that draws sounds from its surrounding environment.
