About KK100
As part of the larger KK100 development, the new curved tower is a powerful addition to Shenzhen. The intricate detailing of the facade, as well as the bell-shaped entry canopy, draw users into the building. At the curving pinnacle of the tower, striking hotel amenities are placed in a suspended egg form, accessed through an 18-story-high atrium. These public spaces offer panoramic views of the city and a wholly unique experience. See Project Case Study
