Ascentage Pharma

Construction 2019-2011

Ascentage Pharmaceutical Headquarters is a new modern complex in Suzhou symbolizing the aspirations of Ascentage’s culture whose cutting edge research in Bio-technology has developed promising new drugs to improve the lifestyles of a future generation afflicted with diseases once thought untreatable or incurable.

Open, clean and modern, the public and employee programmed volumes are discrete shapes, soft in nature, elevated in a floating composition above a reflecting pool facing the main Xincheng Boulevard in Suzhou's Science and Technology District. The tallest volume being the R&D and Administration Building faces the intersection of Xincheng Road and Jinfang Road on the busy southwest corner.

Inspired by the benzene ring of the skeletal formula used to annotate bonds of molecules, each volume’s façade is carefully designed using the hexagon as the source form, which is then engineered to allow for optimal balance of visual transparency and privacy. This together with new high tech manufacturing facilities with ample diffuse natural light filtering from its translucent roof create a singular campus and new identity for Ascentage.
