The firm SPARK has completed designs for a new mixed-use building in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, designboom reports.

The development is called the Prince’s Building and will provide 770,700 sf of office and retail space. The designs were based off of Shenzhen’s geographic location; on the Nantou Peninsula, Shenzhen is surrounded by water on three sides and wraps around the verdant Danan and Xiaonan mountains.

The design for the Prince’s Building applies the same geographic complexity of the locale’s hilly landscape. Five retail pavilions that consist of intricately curved terraces that mimic the local landscape surround a 27-story office tower.

More information about the new development can be found on SPARK’s website.
