Project Description

TOWNLAND was invited to participate in an International Design Competition to undertake the Urban Design of an area (2.2 sq km approx.) surrounding Hangzhou South Station Comprehensive Transport Interchange. The Site is located in the east of Xiaoshan District, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

As a hub for transportation distribution, Hangzhou South Station area is to be transformed into a new central area with modern services, tourism facilities and residential accommodation. The Site is separated into two different parts by the railroad. To improve the connections within the Site, the existing environmental conditions were studied, and a landscape bridge is introduced to connect both the east and west plazas of the Station.

The new Hangzhou Railway Station is to interconnect efficiently with subways, long-distance passenger buses, inner city buses and other transportation facilities. By optimizing the road network, providing a convenient environment for transportation exchange and strengthening the function of Hangzhou South Station as a transportation hub, Hangzhou South Station area will become an iconic Gateway for South ern Hangzhou.

TOWNLAND was awarded SECOND PRIZE for the Project.
