San Yuan Headquarters

This project comprises three buildings: a building that houses restaurant, accommodation and conference facilities; a nine storey office building for 200 people; and a third building with a swimming pool, games room and gymnasium.

The architectural expression draws from the geological processes that produce coal and refers to the layers that appear in the earth after the compression process. This concept is expressed in the building's central block, an office building, which represents the earth element.

The style of the building presents a synthesis of progressive, contemporary architecture and established cultural tradition.
