Guangzhou International Fashion Center
The Guangzhou International Fashion Center will house the new headquarters for Canudilo, a leading high-end men’s clothing, accessories and luxury brand retailer in China, as well as substantial office and retail space, gallery for fashion exhibitions, conference center, roof gardens and underground parking. The minimalism of the building form, combined with the textures and richness of the details of the envelope, reflect the high level craftsmanship and refined, subdued aesthetics of the Canudilo brand.
Located in an area dotted with over one hundred hills, the Fashion Center’s design emphasizes the natural setting. The four buildings are organized around a central grand plaza. An axial relationship is formed starting at the main entry to the site, through the plaza and then on to one of the many hills that anchors the northeast end of this site. The Fashion Center will pursue an environmentally sustainable design plan with energy-saving and green building methods. The art gallery and flagship store are LEEDNC Gold registered, and the two high-rise commercial office towers are LEED NC and CS Silver registered.
