Botanical Garden

Urban Environment

Famous for its natural beauty and historical and cultural heritages, Hangzhou is the political, economic and cultural center of Zhejiang province. The Powerlong Hangzhou Urban Roof Garden celebrates this city, famed for its natural scenery, by anchoring the top of a mixed use commercial project. This urban roof garden design artfully organizes the 29,000 square meters of 5 star boutique hotel, cinema, art gallery and food and beverage program around a “central green,” surrounded by a cluster of outdoor pavilion buildings. Establishing a series of pavilions allows the central green to carve out intimately scaled garden spaces which provide.
