China Automotive Technology & Research Center
This headquarters complex includes three distinct structures designed to meet the needs of CATARC employees and visitors alike. The 681,732-square-foot, high-tech office building boasts an abundance of natural light through a sky lit atrium and glass throughout interior spaces. Skywalks in the atrium allow employees to move freely across the space and the use of glass contributes to a feeling of openness. The office building also houses a conference center and library on the lobby level as well as an underground parking garage.
Adjacent to the office building, and connected via two skybridges, the seven-level garage provides additional covered and surface parking for a total of approximately 1,000 parking spaces at the complex. To accommodate the dining and lodging needs of employees and guests, an eight-story private hotel is also located on the site with a canteen on the lobby level.
