Connectivity Through Design

Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has been selected to build OPPO’s new headquarters in Shenzhen, China, following an international competition.

Conceived as four interconnected towers reaching a height of 200m (42 floors), the 185,000 sq.m design of the OPPO HQ, incorporates two towers of flexible, open-plan spaces linked by a 20-story vertical lobby, and two external service towers providing vertical circulation. Orientated to maximize the views over Shenzhen Bay, the towers taper inwards at lower levels creating large civic spaces at street level.

Pioneering new communication technology in smart devices and internet services, OPPO has established six research institutes, four research and development centers, and a global design studio.

Accommodating this growth, OPPO’s new headquarters will continue their commitment to connectivity through design.

Locating the towers’ service cores externally frees the center of each floor from obstructions; providing uninterrupted views throughout the building that will enhance interaction between employees.

The abundance of natural light, varied working environments, and diversity of routes for staff and visitors to move through the building are all conducive to creative engagement and spontaneity.

Developed as a new civic space for the city with a public walkway diagonally traversing its center, OPPO’s headquarters will include a landscaped plaza, art gallery, shops, restaurants and a direct link to the adjacent station of Shenzhen’s subway network.
