About Fake Hills Point Tower

Despite its apparently tongue-in-cheek name, Fake Hills presents a genuine hybrid experience between high-rise life and a seaside park. Combining the best of both typologies, providing for ocean-front views, while giving access to green, open-air terraces along the entire roofline, its profile is a carefully constructed datum line created to reflect China's flowing mountains as they rise above the dense fog below. An arched entryway and cut-out hole provide visual and spatial continuity between the oceanfront and the valley behind the building.

This development is located in the coastal city of Beihai, China, on a 800 meter-long, narrow oceanfront site. The fundamental geometry of the scheme combines two common yet opposite architecture typology, the high rise and the “groundscraper,” producing an undulating building typology, resulting in a form of a hill. The geometry of the architecture maximizes potential views for the residents; the continuous platform along the roof becomes the public spaces, with gardens, tennis courts and swimming pools on top of the man-made hills.
