The office of AD Architecture is located in a creative park renovated from an old factory in Shantou, where designer hopes to create a perceptive space.
The original structure of the building itself was preserved. In the 5 meter high space, the designer used abstract mountain shape to reflect the dramatic sense of the space. In order to pursue the sense of scale brought by large space, the designer abandoned excessive partitions and adornments, and naturally extended the fusion of original space and new force through the composition of materials.
The black paint finishes, cement floors and dark gray steel plates strengthened the consciousness of the original space's atmosphere. The additional built part is applied with industrialized steel and iron which corrode naturally as time passes by, showing the essence of strength and beauty. The black undertone strongly reflects the color and texture of metal rust, and emphasizes the architectural sense of the space.
While satisfying the functional needs in the office, the designer also added some bold spaces where people can think quietly. Taking the public working area as the core, the designer created two functional areas to inject new vitality. The small attic formed by space division enhances the shaping sense, and the originally tall space becomes very interesting through the intersection of different volumes. Each individual volume is penetrated with another instead of absolutely segmented. The space constantly interacts with people.
