United Units Architects: Winner of World Design Awards 2022. The HOTWON Date Center is a gateway to the data world, being organized by a closed-loop connecting the reception hall, security inspection area, enterprise control center and server rooms. The design focuses on the integration of the entrance facade and interior spaces, based on a modular system to configure the claddings and service belts. The reception hall is an extension of the exterior canopy, creating a high degree of continuity between inside and outside. The server room presents a sense of conciseness and order, which is consistent with the rationality of the machine.
