Munich-based Henn Architekten has won the competition proposal for the China Life Insurance Research & Development Center on the rural outskirts of Beijing. The design concept was developed from a traditional Chinese courtyard architecture and translated into highly technologically developed, forward-looking design. The complex for China’s biggest insurance company consists of a main building, a research and laboratory building and a training center with a connected boarding house.

Red color, the most favorite color by Chinese, symbolizing fortune and prosperity in China culture. It illuminated on each side of the reception in the foyer of the main building. The big courtyard laid in the square plan organization and served as a place of communication and contemplation.
