Guanshengyuan, with a history of over 100 years, is located at the platanus-lined Guiping Road.This project is to renew eight buildings here.
The eight small-scale buildings come together to form a community where people feel like they are walking on the streets.
We hope that through the renewal, we’ll fit the buildings into the surroundings while retaining the perfect sense of scale of these low-rise buildings.
In Shanghai, there are many beautiful old houses built during the concession period, each with its own characteristics.
For this project, we consider it to be the community of detached old houses with its own feature.
Therefore, we choose washed stone and teak, which are often used in the facade of the old houses, as the main materials to retain the unique and mild style of the old buildings on the facades.
After the renewal, by the volume change between the buildings,the different layering between layers,
the staggering of the window positions, and the multi-angle setting of the floor-to-ceiling windows,the community of buildings fully presents its unique sense of rhythm.
While retaining the sense of scale in the old factory of Guanshengyuan, we attach vitality and a distinctive Shanghai style to it.
We have built the community into a cultural and creative complex with work,entertainment and art. There is also a courtyard set as an open and leisure office area.
We’ve always taken “LIFE INNOVATION” as our design concept. The experience brought by using the facilities of this project is the first step of “LIFE INNOVATION”.
