JDS architects win the Architizer A+ Award with the project H in Hangzhou (China) in the category Commercial/Office High-Rise.
The 16-floor office building is a block the size of the site with 2 voids traversing the building diagonally in plan, creating an iconic H shape. The void through the bottom floors becomes an arch which serves as a covered public space and is oriented to create a pathway between the 2 urban centers surrounding the site.
The Architizer A+Awards focus on promoting and celebrating the year’s best architecture and products. Its mission is to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion its potential for a positive impact on everyday life.
