The head office park of Philips is located at Shengning Road, Jing’an district, Shanghai. The office park is adjacent to Lingshi Park ---- the biggest park in downtown Shanghai. With a GFA of 170,000㎡, the office park is elaborately customized for Philips by COLORFULL YUJING DESIGN. The whole project took three years.
In the new office park, there are banks, cafes, gyms, food courts, and more than 1,200 parking spaces, 90% of which are underground. Over 15,000㎡ of green area is set in the office park to create a natural and comfortable work environment. The charm of design lies not only in the ornate outward appearance, but also in the concept of energy conservation and environment protection. Instead of high-tech, subtle design is applied to the facade to enable better efficiency as well as reduce energy consumption.
The latticed north and south facades save energy by serving as a sunshade during daytime. The net rack is divided according to a module of 8.4m vertically and 4.2m horizontally. Balconies are built by the designers’ application of cantilever structure to the facade, which provides cozy and refreshing outdoor space for users. Moreover, the structure serves the office with the best sunlight and outdoor view, and also reduce heat absorption. The energy saving ratio is generally over 90%. Inside the building, modulization is applied to make the spatial arrangement flexible. Each office floor can be divided into different sizes to fit any future requirements. The staff can easily communicate and enjoy work here.
