Farrell unveils tallest tower by UK architect

  • Comment

Terry Farrell + Partners has revealed the latest image of KingKey Tower, the tallest skyscraper in the world designed by a UK architect

When completed the 98-storey (439m) mixed-use structure in Shenzhen, China will house 210,000 m² of accommodation.

There will be 70 floors of office space, a 20 floor ‘six star’ hotel and a basement level retail level linking to the Metro.

A spokesman for the practice said: ‘Given the current economic climate and difficulties many UK practices are facing, this project offers a fantastic opportunity to boost the profile and excellence of UK architecture worldwide.’

The project, part of a larger scheme overseen by Terry Farrell, was won in competition in 2006 ahead of SOM, KPF and RTKL.
