The working space is transformed by dormitory of old Nanxing Glass Manufactory, which was built in 1986. Exposed red bricks, concrete ceiling combine with brand-new glass and epoxy floor paint to remain vivid and long-lasting contrast between history and renewal for passerby.

Divided into three zones, the space is connected by two raw iron tunnels, while integrated by a corridor by the window. It’s meant to effervesce unexpected pleasure when people exploring the space.The blank window frame is reserved deliberately and well protected by close glass to completely record the changes during the process of reconstruction.

Flahalo Creative, the owner of the space, is a dynamic and innovative corporation in culture creative field. The concept “space of flow” brings up the project. For human resources system, departments would not exist so that people are encouraged to follow their moods to work around, facing the desktop setup in the long table or sitting cross-legged on the carpet with laptop. Alsono drawer is installed in the space. Instead, staffs are provided personal lockers to keep the belongings.
